    I just turned 24 on Sunday I graduated at 22 from my BSN program, straight from high school, and I've been working as a nurse since February. I'm a school nurse and I'm pretty much one of the youngest people employed by my district. When everyone found out on Monday that I turned 24 the universal reply was, "You're such a baby!" lol I didn't take offense to it at all. There was a lot of young people in my BSN class, but I think the median age was around 25/26.

    The great thing about being so young and having no kids I was easily able to pick up and move 500+ miles for a nursing job. I decided to stay down here and I like it so much! I feel really blessed to be so young and already have my bachelor's degree plus a start on a really awesome career. I'm glad I found out nursing was the right path for me early on!
    Great! And happy belated birthday!

    I feel like i face a lot of challenges as a young nurse........people look at me like i am a child sometimes or think i am incompetent because i am young.
