First of all: CONGRATULATIONS FOR GETTING YOUR GED!!!!!!!!! GOOD JOB, THERE GAL!!!!!!
Well, all I have to say, is that if you are too old at 30 to go get your RN, I might as well not finish my application that I just received from my university, since I am 55+.... NOT.
I just graduated last week - the oldest person at my graduation of some 400+ folks: 78 years old. She could barely make it back to her seat, as I grabbed her arm when her legs were getting unstable and she couldn't walk in a straight line anymore. I asked her if she was tired, and she said she was exhausted - but SHE DID IT! I wonder if she thought "she was too old" to try?
YOU need to do this, FOR YOURSELF (1) and (2) to show your children how IMPORTANT THEIR EDUCATION IS FOR THEM! It really makes an impact on the kids when everyone is at the kitchen table doing their homework. Besides, when they need help on their Algebra, you will be able to help them!!
Good luck. Push forward. Even on the days you think it is too hard to complete. One day at a time and you will have your College degree and be in Nursing School too!
