Nursing program

Hi everyone. This may be a stupid question but, is graduating at the age of 24 old? I ask this queston because most people graduate when their 21 or 22, maybe even 23 nto 24 right? The only reason why I am graduating when Iam 24 is because I failed the calculations test three times and I had to drop four of my classes because of it. So, now am taking two classes and i have to take those four classes i dropped next semester. I feel like such a dumb behind because I feel like Iam not making any progress at all and I just want to be done with school and the nursing program. thanks

Re: Nursing program

Why would you think 24 was old? Nursing school has majority of younger students however I bet you didn't notice that your class had older students as well. I went back nsg school when I was 28 to to further my career. There was some older and most were younger however we all had to do the same things so I never really thought about it. Good luck with state boards.

Re: Nursing program

24 is not old to be a nursing graduate! I am 20 and my other friend is 18 and we are the youngest people in our current class. My friend who is going to be entering nursing school in January is 27 and will be 28 before she graduates. When it comes to nursing school, you are kinda ahead of the game.

Re: Nursing program

see the reason why I think its too old is because ive been in school since I was 18 years old. during that time I had to change schools and i also obtained an associates degree in science, which to me doesnt mean nothing. I dont know. Iam trying to get over it. To me its okay to go BACK to school but its not okay to be in school for 5 years consectively. oh yeah i forgot to mention that iam in a bsn program.
