Are you a nontraditional student? You can check your state to see what organizations are there for you to join. There is LOTS of support out there and here for nontraditional students. You can join the ANTSHE group and go to their yearly convention or run for office, and you can also give great recognition to nontraditional students from the Pinnacle and Spire group.
There are many other websites out there that are popular for nontraditional students too. You can also join if you are thinking of becoming a nontraditional student, or help them. Choose which ones you like and bookmark them. And be sure to stop back here often. We have pages about scholarships, other nontraditional students, the State page, and a link to sign up for our Nontrad News too. Soon, I hope to have a discussion group here too. For now, I moderate Yahoo Group, have a nontrad blog, and a group for nontraditional students on Facebook. We would love to have you there too. Check out our Site Map page to see all the pages here on the website as well.
Here are some page other people and groups have done that are useful for nontraditional students. Check them out!
ANTSHE - the national group for nontraditional students. You can join as an individual or a group.
The Pinnacle and Spire Honor Societies for nontrads can be good for a group or a school.

Wanting a health career? The web page at the aacom.org site has links to websites for potential medical students, including one I really like, OldPreMeds.org, which is the National Society for Nontraditional Premedical and Medical Students, Inc.
