- 0Feb 23, '13 by LadyFree28Quote from thenursemandy^Really don't have anyone question my abilities, just my age. In the 13 years of being in healthcare, I have aged from 12-13 to 17-early 20s. When I tell my clients I'm in my 30s, they get a kick out of that!!!I've been a nurse for 9 years, since I was 21. I still look very young and sometimes residents and their family think I'm in High School still...no joke. BUT, I carry myself with confidence and no one has ever really questioned my abilities.
