    I had just began a 14-month Accelerated BSN program when I turned 46. Last week I completed my first year as an RN, working as a new grad nurse at a large teaching hospital. It was hard, but it was great! When I decided to go back to school, people (my mom and mother-in-law) thought I was nuts for walking away from a 20+ year career in the software/computer business (and with a MBA 10 years prior). Nursing is a calling and you must follow your heart. And in nursing, the nurse who continually learns and grows is truly valued. Lastly, any one who would discourage you from further growth and development likely has their own issues to deal with.
