I would like to apply to the RN during my FY1, when all being well I will be 4-5 years clear of asthma prescription issues. I read on another thread that you should apply by the age of 39 (this was the poster's personal opinion I believe), yet the age limit is 55. I will be older than 39. Has anybody joined or know anyone who's joined at such an infirm and wrinkly age? Who knows, I could be the first. Look out.
