    Who wants to hire a graduate nurse at 55?

    Who wants to hire a graduate nurse at 55?

    Yes, this is what I thought of this week! Be willing to work nights and go back to where I did my practicum. At least they saw how I worked despite my age! ? I contacted the nurse manager and she asked me to apply online and she will set up an inter...
