I don't think age should prevent you from pursuing your passion. Only you know what you are capable of handling. Nursing is very mentally and physically taxing but there are a variety of areas available to work in. I personally applaud your desire to go back to school. Best of luck to you!!
First of all you don't have any idea what I have or intend to do to facilitate change. There is a right and wrong way to speak to people whether on a public forum or not. Not everyone has that ability which is sad.
I agree that the managers job is tough and thankless. From what I understand being there less than a year these problems have always existed. I know there are problems everywhere. I appreciate those of you that have given constructive advice. I'm not looking to leave where I am, just trying to find ways to stay positive. I have been a member of this forum for many years and sometimes we just need to vent which is what I was trying to do. I will be deleting this post and from now on will just read about other people in similar situations. Hopefully those that are critical will not find themselves in situations where they need to vent or seek advice. Thank you to all of you that understand and can relate.
It is a managers problem to fix when all of their staff are leaving. We know what the problems are and have made them aware but they are not fixing it. I'm not unhappy there nor have I said that I was. I am sad and discouraged that so many good nurses are leaving. I'm trying to stay positive among so much negativity. This is a forum to discuss these things among peers but not to get slammed with judgements. Maybe we should all just post about rainbows and unicorns?
True, but it's not my problem to assess. Management is aware of why people are unhappy but nothing changes. I don't agree that the grass is always greener somewhere else so I choose to stay and am trying to find ways to stay motivated to do that.
I am doing it at the age of 42 and there have been older students than me doing it. I say age is just a number and who cares how old you are? If this is what you want than you should do it regardless of your age. Besides don't they say that with age comes knowledge? You will do great!!!
And NO the program is not easy but many things that we do in life are not easy but it makes us stronger. I recently failed my fourth semester in one class by 1% and am retaking it this Spring. School has been a 6 year struggle for me but I know it will pay off eventually
Good luck to you!!!!
