    I'm "old" too! And I love the internet and am very capable of finding my way about. (I am one of the oldest nurses in my area and the "young" kids ask me to show them around computers and the iternet all the time).

    Dear Tom,
    This is my first posting to a bulletin board. I'm a 50-year-old RN, who obtained a BSN this year. Guess I'd say there are no limitations for people my age or older to use the Internet as a forum for discussion. I'd be interested in knowing how many 50-something and 60-something RNs manage the stamina to remain in bedside nursing.

    I'm 48-almost 49-graduated in '72-as I get up from my rocking chair...Seriously,I also find that many of my cohorts are getting computer savvy and going to the 'net for info. Age doesn't seem to matter-old dog,etc.

    I am a late 40 something. I have my own web page and I'm on the www almost daily. I've presented at conferences on the internet. I'm not sure what you are asking, but with the average age of nurses being 42, this profession has more to worry about than how well the mature nurses use the internet. I would research something like....with the average age of a US nurse being 42; and declining nursing school enrollments for five years; what is the probability of a major nursing shortage for years to come? And further...how are we going to retire with no one standing in line to take our place?
