I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions or insights to offer in regard to older (40+) nurses maximizing their chances of being hired, and conversely, decreasing their chances of being fired. I have been reading several posts that refer to the discrimination some older nurses have been subjected to, or are currently facing in regard to these issues.
I am understanding that older nurses are more expensive to employers in terms of medical insurance, worker's compensation insurance and other benefits (please feel free to correct me).
If you are an older nurse, your suggestions are especially appreciated.
I apologize if my question has already been addressed. I did try a search of both these questions separately.
