    I became an LPN in my mid 40's and then an RN at age 58!! Yep, that is a current picture!! I don't plan on retiring at 65 either. I love my job as a school nurse and becoming a nurse is one of the greatest joys in my life!! Keep going and may God bless your endeavors. I know He did mine!

    I am 36 and in my second semester of nursing school. No medical experience, 2 young children, and a full time job in an unrelated field. Going to school has been the best thing I've done for me and my family in a long time! It's not easy, but the worthwhile ventures never are. Good luck!
