    I am so off the hook angry about the age discrimination and experience discrimination in nursing that I am going to conduct a little experiment- being the "old mean crabby,crusty experienced bat" of an RN I am. I have enrolled in a BSN completion program which starts in 1 month. I will be done in 1 year, at that time I plan to shave off 18 years of my RN experience from my resume. Let's see if the hiring goes any better for a 56 yr old 'BSN' with 14 years experience. I am sick and tired of this age discrimination, experience discrimination and unemployment. I am going to catch these buggers once and for all, Now I am a 'crusty mean old bat" of a nurse - on a mission !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I will definately be posting on my findings!!!!!!!!!!!
