    Female here - I get discriminated because of age, but in a positive way. I did not start nursing school till I was 45, so by the time I got my first job I was granny.

    A couple of my classmates in nursing school were in their 50s. They reported similar experiences from their first jobs. Because of their age, patients assumed that they were veteran nurses and knew more than anyone on the floor.

    Yes, it really does. Just had a LOL yell at me last night for being a pervert and how dare I do a woman's work.

    Sigh.
    Yeah, cuz there's nothing sexier than a dried up, old, paper skinned crone.

    Best answer that I have ever heard for this one is, "Nope. I'm going to care for both males and females."
