Are you in your 30's and in school?

I was laid off recently and am considering taking a LNA course (licensed nursing assistant) I can afford it and have the time to do it in 3 weeks BUT I haven't done schooling since I graduated in 1991 and am honestly terrified. I hated school and I worry about paying and failing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Jobs are hard to come by and I really need to do something.

  • I was also laid off and decided to go back to school. I graduated h.s. in 1994 and hadn't been in a classroom since then. I amazed myself by loving college! It's so much different than h.s. It's a lot of work but I feel like I'm accomplishing something great and will have a good career soon.
