I'll be 26 in September when I start my first semester of nursing school .. I graduated with an A.A.S in radiography in 2014 & realized that I want more patient care than being an x-ray tech offers so I decided to "start over" also. After orientation with a bunch of 18 & 19 year-olds, I did feel kind of old but nursing is what I see myself doing for the rest of my life so I'm glad I realized it now as opposed to many years from now. Age is most definitely just a number -- I had a pharmacy school intern at my job who was over 50 (with 6 years of school ahead of her), her kids were all out of the house & she was finally able to pursue her dream of being a pharmacist. She is my inspiration. You are never to old to follow your dreams!
