This blog goes along with yesterday's, this one is on super hero strength. I think I'm doing it right now, being in my mid 40's and going back to college to get my RN. I have always wanted to do this but life got in the way and when my hubby's adopted granddaughter was planning on going to college, we were going to help her out and give her money to get started but with the stipulation she had to come over and discuss with us her plans.
Well she never did, so was discussing with hubby that I wouldn't mind going to college and getting my RN, he said he would pay for it if I wanted to go. This was 4 years ago, so at the age of 43 I started at the local community college. It was hard and the instructors in the nursing program wasn't very helpful with me, because I have test anxiety bad and missed passing one class by less than 2 points to stay in the program so had to drop out. A friend told me of another college that she had gone to and the instructors there was very helpful to her so I went and checked it out.
Started there in March of 2013, and so far it has been difficult but have not had alot of problems. The instructors, even the ones that are not with the nursing program are willing to help so that makes the experience so much better.
If all goes well, March 14, 2015 I will graduate with my associates degree in Nursing at the age of 47, almost 48(birthday is at the end of march). Yes I will need to go and get my Bachelors degree but I can do that online so will be easier for me to work and finish that up.
