I am 39 and will graduate with my associates in nursing in May. There are older students in class with me also. You aren't too old!! Go for it if iit is what you want!! I can't help you with schools because I am in Texas. Good luck with your career change!!
Go for it! When I started nursing, I was 27, there were 19 & 20 yrs old students, but also a woman (I never forget). She was 45, had been a house wife, send 2 kids through college and her son had just graduated the previous year. She made it.
There will be financial sacrifices if you do not plan on working. But I believe it's worth it.
When I became a RN, there was a LPN I worked with who went through the Regency Program. She made it, matter fact she went further after 5 years of staff nursing, she teaching nursing now. Occasionally, she does staff nursing through agency. GO FOR IT.
We need more men in nursing. I must say, you guys get faster perks than the female. Your promoted in administrative positions are quicker, back home. GO FOR IT! Treasure
