I’m returning to college in my 50’s to get my teaching degree in Elementary Education and am wondering how difficult will it be finding a teaching position at my age?

Will I be considered to be someone with a lifetime of knowledge or will the younger applicants shine over me?

Should I get a ADN or BSN?

I will get a BSN but I need advice. Is it smarter to get an ADN first so I can at least get job at a hospital and get experience and then get my BSN or just wait out the 4 years and go straight for the BSN?
