I was fresh out of high school when I did my LPN classes and expected the entire class to be similar. I was VERY wrong. There were a lot of mothers in their mid-late 20's and early 30s. We even had a couple grandmothers in our class. I was in the minority being fresh from high school with no husband or children.
Never feel "too old" for it. You're never too old to better yourself and change your life!

there were about 25 people in my graduating class and there was only 2 men in there. I think men could do well in the nursing profession. There are several times when you need a lot of physical strength and I think men are usually better with that than a bunch of women.

I am one of the 4 guys in my class. There are over 30 girls. But it's fun.

I attended the LPN program in Jonesboro several years ago, and I am now a Family Nurse Practitioner. I have also taught in an LPN program in Missouri for 3 years. I feel it really doesn't matter what school you attend, just attend! Your education belongs to you, not a school or a teacher. If you have the drive to do something you will be successful. If a school is accredited then the state feels it is a competent program.

As for "those who can do, and those who can't teach"; I have been a nurse for 20 years and the 3 years I spent teaching were the most difficult years in nursing. An instructor has to be perfect, very knowledgable about all areas of nursing, and has to work extra hours after class time is over preparing for the next day. Instructors give the basic information you need to be successful. It is not their job to spoon feed information.

Nursing is a field that changes daily. One will never be bored and the opportunities are endless.
