    Thanx for the great post... Hows the job going? I'm 42 and have applied for 6 nursing programs for the Spring of 2012. I'm glad to see that us geezers have a chance... I have always believed that our experienced and seasoned souls have a lot to give in the field of nursing.

    Thanks for sharing...
