Has anybody experienced age discrimination as a result of applying for a nursing position? I am in my first semester of nursing school
and when finished will be the ripe old age of 46.
I had not have given the idea of age discrimination much thought until I read an article about a nurse in her mid-fifties who was discriminated against. She was in excellent physical condition, and had 20 years of nursing experience on her resume, but was unable to find a job anywhere. She thought that maybe the hospitals she applyed to could find a much less experenced nurse and pay them a lot less.
I am just a bit concerned.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
