A report on WSYR, the ABC affiliate in Syracuse, focuses on the nursing program at Onondaga Community College, where working adults can become registered nurses in about four semesters through self-directed coursework.
The report features Russell Burlingame, who taught school, ran a grocery store and worked for UPS before reassessing his life.
“I said ‘What do you want to do when you grow up?’" Burlingame told the television station. "Several factors: service to others, it had to include that.”
The report said that nursing and teaching are the two most popular degree programs for returning boomers.
