    Well, I'm not too optimistic about my chances of EVER retiring like my parents did. I'm 49, been a nurse since 1992 and plan to work till I'm 70!

    I think it's really hard for people to answer this- there's too many factors to take into consideration. How much savings, investments, etc... you have, what kind of retirement plan, what type of facility you work for, what kind of lifestyle you want to have (conservative, travel, etc), if you have kids (and how many). I dont think nursing differs from too many other fields in the sense that it matters more on the person and their planning, than on what field they are in.
