  • Good for you! I will be going back to school one day...I am 43 and two classes away from my Associates. Isn't school much more fun when you WANT to go? :)

  • Yes, Maam! I am 41 and I've been going to Nursing School (alternating between full-time and part-time) for the last five years. I will graduate this December with my Associate's Degree R.N., then will take eight more classes at a four year university and have my BSN. I love learning and I am excited about being able to look for a new job soon and begin my new career.

  • Good for you! I'm not technically a non-traditional student (I'm 25 and a Junior this year) but I can't say that I really fit in with the kids that ARE traditional students.

  • I got my masters when I was 46-47. I am always taking classes as required by my state for teaching license. I love going to classes.
