Nursing as a profession, what do you think?

I'm a system analyst, yet I like medical courses. I don't think I can study medicine again, so I am contemplating to go for nursing science. I'm 31, can I still meet up or what's your view?.

Go for it. Over here if you start the nursing course at 31 you'd be qualified by 34/35...so plenty of active years ahead. I was in the healthcare industry some years ago and remember a student nurse who started her course at 42.

Really? 31 is still young, God help help me, I really want to do the course.

Pursue it. Don't let age hinder you. When I was still in law school, I had classmates who were in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. They work in the morning and go to school in the evening.

I wanted a nursing career and was a nurse's aid for a short while, until I went into the Navy. I think it's a good career.

I know that Nurse's are paid well. Personally, I couldn't do it. With your training as a Systems Analyst, @pureme, you might be able to do something creative and helpful in the administrative aspect of the medical profession, too.

I remember my 1st degree project was based on that and I like it a lot, thanks for the encouragement.

If it is something that you really want to do, I say go for it.
