What is the oldest nurse you've worked with?
I just found out I worked with a nurse that is 95 years old. ( She works 3 -12's a week on a busy med-surg floor.) HOLY GUACAMOLE!!!! I thought she was in her 50's and she told me that she was 95. She has been at this facility as a nurse for 83 years. She started when she was 12. She also has two teenage foster children. Talk about stamina. :bowingpur
This nurse can run rings around me and everyone else on the floor while looking nice in her make-up and hair. I asked when she would retire. She said,"when they carry me to the funeral home." I can only hope I have the energy she does at her age.
You thought she was in her 50s but she's 95? She must look darn good(I cannot imagine a 95 year old willing to work, let alone do 12-hr shifts). She HAS to be pulling your leg!
