You are right. I don't know "know much about what it takes to get in to nursing school or to get through nursing school these days."
This person does, however, have 20-plus years in Human Resources. If you are NOT familiar with this field, WE do the hiring. :trout:
I was speaking from the standpoint of a generation of "kids" applying to ALL fields, not simply your field. And there have been MANY articles and studies to back up this assertion.
Since my daughter is 25 years old, and the majority of new nurses are still within that age range, I am more than comfortable using this term. The fact that the nursing field is attracting more and more older students does nothing to nullify the fact that they are still a minority.
And, to repeat myself, I was speaking of ALL the professional fields, NOT simply the Nursing fields.
A generalization. There are many "older generations" that know their way around a computer as well as you and I.
