    Going back to school at 34

    Hi All, I'm looking for some guidance for those who have gone back to nursing school in their 30s. I graduated in 2009 with a degree in Criminal Justice and have been working ever since. I want a change in my life and career and have always been drawn to nursing (BSN). I work full time right now and am looking around at how to get started again with school. I don't want to waste my time and want to make sure I get started on the right path. I'm assuming because I've been out of school for so long that I'll need to start from scratch. Any tips on where to begin? I appreciate your help! fyi, I'm in Southern California.

    Need advice. Going back to get my BSN at 31!

    Thanks so much! Can the community college assist with a transcript evaluation or will that need to be done by an ABSN school? And should I do it before I start my prereq's? Sorry for all the questions, I just want to make sure I don't waste any more time!
  3. Hello everyone! I am new to this forum and was wondering if anyone could give me some advice on going back to school for a nursing degree 10 years after graduating from college. I live in Southern California and graduated in 2009 from the University of California, Irvine. My degree was in Criminology and honestly, my grades were not that great. I just need some advice on where I need to start to get back in to school to get my bachelors in nursing. I understand that I will need to most likely need to retake my prerequisite classes in science and math but I am honestly not even sure where to start. Should I go back to a four-year college or to a local community college to complete those classes and then apply for an accelerated nursing program? I was thinking I could go to my local community college and speak with a counselor and start that way. Does anyone have any other advice they can give me? I really appreciate it. Thank you.
