Age a factor in nursing?
- 1Sep 13, '12 by bekayel11Hello! I'm currently winding down for lpn degree, I will be done in 3 months, and as I get closer I just worry about my age. I'm only 19 years so old, so I'm curious, do employers judge aplicants on their age?
- 0Sep 14, '12 by tewdlesI certainly do sometimes. Life experience can have a huge impact upon a person's ability to succeed in some jobs. Hospice, for instance, is generally not a good place for a young and inexperienced clinician to start.
Is it age discrimination? I don't think so, I am just trying to match people with jobs that afford the greatest opportunity for success.
