I'm in the fire dept also. I've worked as an emergency nurse for several years and starting NP school in August. I'm 42. I still have twelve more years in the FD, so I guess I'll do both, as I don't plan on giving up the FD retirement. I plan to work part-time ER.

PM me if you have any other questions. Best wishes to you in your studies.

No offense whatsoever. I'm 50 and have been an APN for 3 years. I have been a volunteer pre-hospital RN for 10 years on my rural fire dept - no pension though - lol.

Nephrology - dialysis visits might be an option. We have 5 mid-levels in our practice and two do part time dialysis visits.

Age 34, just graduated with FNP.

Accepted part-time (32 hours as that was what I was looking for) in primary care peds. Also offered part-time in OB-GYN and Internal Med. Don't worry (as I did-obviously unnecessarily) there are part-time positions out there!

I'm 58 and will probably graduate this year as an np. There are several in my class who are 62.

Specializes in ACNP-BC.

I am 32 years old and have been an NP for one year. I personally feel age is irrelevant to how clinically competent a provider may be. I don't have any age preference for providers that take care of me...as long as they know what they are doing. :)
