My wife decided to go back to school at the age of 40. She has been working as a medical tech at a large hospital but dreamed of being a RN. Well that was 5 years ago. She just passed her RN Board test yesterday! I am so proud of her determination and not giving up. Her advise is to go after your dreams no matter what age you are.

Atta girl, way to go!!! :thumbs: for knowing age shouldn't matter. My wife re entered the work force this last year as a way to help the budget. I wanted her to go back to school for nursing, but she isn't ready yet.

Congrats to Colleen. She'll never have to worry about finding work. Our daughter is an RN, close to 6 years now. Demand for nurses is high everywhere.

Give her my Congratulations as well! Kudos to you Colleen! My wife also went back to school a little later in life than most, but it was her dream to complete her Education. It's something they can never take away from you! Sent from my ADR6350 using Tapatalk 2

 Congratulations Colleen.  :thumbs:

 

That is no easy task to accomplish, going back to school at age 40 and raising a family and household duties.  That is a JOB well done.
