I'm 37, nursing is my 2nd career. I have worked in a small hospital for 6 years and loved my work. Finally I got my dream job in a large hospital ICU and started there 2 months ago. Things are going well but...Most of my coworkers/preceptors are in their early to mid 20s, one charge nurse actually graduated the same year but he started right from ICU while I worked in med-surg. I sometimes feel self-conscious for being "old" but "new" in the field. I know I should always push myself to learn, and I always wanted to work in ICU. I am graduating from NP school in 2 years. Sometimes I wonder why I'm switching to a new field for two years. It's so much easier to do what I already know and be where I was already comfortable.Just venting, I guess, so much to learn and still nervous.
