    Will be starting nursing school when I am 50...
    Sheesh, I was 51 when I started my ADN program last fall. Age hasn't been an issue at all, but I truly envy those in their 20's and 30's as they will have so much more time to explore all that nursing and the extended options available with this degree has to offer!!

    Go for it!!!

    i am 21 years old. i felt the same way. even though i am pretty young, i wish i started earlier. i have a friend who is an RN and she is only 20! that's because she went to a nursing HS and became an LPN. i am finishing my pre-req's in Jan 08'. But be glad you are doing it now because you have more knowledge about nursing and what field you want to get into so you go right through with no regrets. Nursing takes time and commitment. I applaude those who are older and decided to get into nursing. Keep going!

    Okay, it it's too late for you then it's REALLY too late for me, as I'm 34 and starting new, as well. I'll be just shy of 40 when I graduate. Interestingly enough, I want to get into the same field of you. It's been a dream of mine since I was a teenager. I say go for it!!!

    26 is not too late to start nursing school. I've wanted to be a nurse since I, however, "life" happened and I never made it to clinical part of nursing school. I start nursing school in January at the young age of 31. Never ever give up on this or think it's too late. My older brother who's been a nurse now for almost 11 years was 32 or 33 when he graduated.
