Im just starting nursing at 40 years old and Im wondering is this going to backfire on me in the long run???
I only have about 20-25 yrs--if God spares life
--to put in the field and most of the nurses that I am meeting that are my age have already been in the field for at least 20 yrs!!!! Is this a good thing or a bad thing
Now, I should mention that I am a really "YOUNG" looking 40 y/o...People often mistake me for 25-27-- which I love by the way--who wouldnt
...but Im still worried about agism :uhoh21:.
Im just starting a new floor and my co-workers are dying to know my age, of course Im not going to say....overall, I guess Im wondering is starting nursing this late in the game a good idea?????
I welcome any thoughts on this :wink2:.
