I know, but it's a matter of time. I'm 48, will be 49 when I retire from
the Navy and would be starting school. LPN can be done in 18 months (I
think) but RN takes 4 years.
That's only if you go for a BSN. If you do an Associates Degree, it
might take only 2 years.
If all were perfect with my back (DDD with the progressive sort, 3
herniations and a 4th that is nominal as of checks 3 weeks ago), my desire
would be to work either geriatrics or ICU (non-natal). As it is, with age
and all, LPN is my only real option if I go back to it at all.
Not really. I see a lot of older students...older than you, some of
I really suggest investigating it. It sounds like what you know, is
not how it really is. There are a lot of programs at community
colleges, and a lot of folks are going into nursing as a midlife
career change.. Some of them are a lot older than you....LOL.
And because of the nursing shortage, there is are a lot of options for
financial help, and in some areas, there are scholarships, etc... The
country is desperate for nurses..
