LOL Wondering why they would even be mentioned until I realized the person wrinting this post may well be about 19. LOL Guess we are getting kind of old then. Darn! And I had myself convinced I'm still just a young girl at 50. Darn again!if person is physically and mentaly right and capable of doing her daily tasks it is good to keep up working on it. people should do what they love to do and no matter obstacles they do it right. no age matter in any of life activities till person is burn out and hate what is doing.
my cna instructor was at her 70's and she was lovely, honest, kind, good person, with so much experience and knowledge than not one could be amaze.
i am nursing student now. lots of my instructor is about their 60's. i love to learn from their experience and knowledge. most of them are very realiable, responsible, willing to share, and respectfull for other more than younger nurses (some of young nurses are very direspectfull and too self-esteem).
god bless you all.

That is when one can no longer perform the functions required by the position one is working in at the time. I also think that one should be allwoed to continue working in the position one is working in until one drops over dead if one so desires it.What age should nurses retire?
