immature nursing students - page 4

I saw a comment from a 21 y/o nursing student to another 27 y/o nursing student on a webpage. It really bothered me because the 21 y/o pretty much stated "you're 27? what were you doing all this... Read More

    Having NOT read through the entire "thread" I would like to give my input...I think that the real question, or tragedy is, is that too many folks are getting into nursing for the wrong reasons. Old, young, mature, immature, it's all a mixed bag. Ummm, I am a little older and even though I KNOW there are many younger people that would be considered more "mature acting" than I, my life experience is way beyond many of theirs and my interaction with people is far more diverse and developed. So the topic is big and terms need to be "qualified" in order to break it down effectively...IMHO there is a huge number of people who now look at nursing for its "income appeal" that really should not be going into the biz, THIS is my biggest concern!!! Finally, I know nurses/nursing students of all ages that are wonderful! and others that are just not so good at all...

    Actions speak louder than age! We have a few 30yr old's acting immature than some 20yr olds!

    I don't know that you can judge someone's character or call them a "bad apple" for that comment - that's rather judgmental of you...

    21yo's are notoriously immature, it's not really a surprise. It's also difficult to read people's tone of voice over the internet - maybe he/she didn't realize you could do nursing as an older student etc etc.

    The worst interpretation is not necessarily the true one.
    Um I'm a little offended by this statement:

    I became a nurse at 20 y/o and I'm very mature for my age. So I have to disagree with this comment.

    Why are you insulted? No one said all 21 year-olds are immature. Certainly no one called you immature. 21 year-old individuals are young, and often haven't yet matured; this is not uncommon.

    What part of this statement is offensive? Even you stated: "I'm very mature for my age" which implies you realize that all 20 year-olds were not as mature as you.

    I finished my BSN at 21, not immature so much as totally naive! Oh my did I blush a lot my grad year (yes I'd been an LTC aide, but still).

    Classroom dynamics are very interesting to watch. My younger students are not always the problematic ones, I've found that age has less to do with it than attitude does.

    Funny how old threads pop up like this, wonder how people find them to respond to?

    i am not saying anyone between a certain age group is immature. At that age I had a lot of growing up to do. I am not here to stereotype so please don't take it that way. I just don't like when older students are discriminated against because of their age. Honestly some of them might feel uncomfortable at first because of their age and seeing/hearing someone react like that bothers me.
    A lot of the people I know who are nurses started nursing school in their mid to late 30s.
