Totally agree with PRN, you are way too old to be asking such silly questions especially on a forum! Hate to be so harsh but it must be wonderful to live a life where you can contemplate if you wish to be a RN? It's not a whimsical notion, it takes time, effort and commitment and involves life saving decisions sometimes. You are too speculative to be an RN and I actually feel insulted and I'm not being dramatic, when I see questions like this. Ask instead the question, how difficult it was for others to become RNs. Read some of the posts where people struggled through multiple jobs, horrible spouses, horrific situations, immigration and traumas whilst getting their RN's and then take my advice and not become a RN.
