    Wow! So awesome! On my own time I help out with some AMAZING people much older than I am. And I love it! Their life stories (living in San Francisco during the summer of love) I never fail to ask more questions about their life. You will rock in your chosen role. And maybe I'll have a chance. Thanks again.

    My nursing career has been a failure

    You're not a loser. You made it through school. Great job! A lot of people get a degree and realize that their field of study is not their passion. There are other jobs that require a RN but don't involve patient care. For example, I've worked for two medical device companies that use RNs (without business degrees/experience) to help in product design, conduct user validation studies and support development partner hospitals. Other RN roles have included inseriving and installation of new products. Also, many companies like to hire RNs in sales and support positions. If these sound interesting you could consider the other side of health care. Good luck! You have a ton of options.

    Thank you so much for your response. Take care. I'm currently working full time (12 hour shifts) as a CNA. I've never seen a TV show or movie make that look glamorous.

    Thank you. I appreciate your response and the others I have received. I currently work as a CNA in a local hospital. (Not the same as an RN. But it is a full time 12 hour shift). I mentioned wanting to go to school to get me LVN. But several of the RNs suggested going directly to get my ADN. I guess by biggest concern is age discrimination in applying to a program. But you have given me something to think about. Take care.

    Hi! I'm 60 years old and I have always wanted to be a nurse. At my current pace, I will be able to apply for the ADN program in 3 years. Is 63 too old? Does anyone know someone that age that has been accepted into a program? Thank you!
