    Nursing is the Biggest Mistake of My Life

    Oh sweetheart - please don't despair. Not yet. Graduate. Pass your NCLEX and you will surely have more options. If it makes your feel any better at all, I graduated as an LPN and waited to pass my NCLEX but once that happened I was hired almost righ...

    Nursing @ 32?

    Honey - I FINISHED nursing school at 32. One of my best friends and classmates was 50. Go.
