    Too old for OB?

    How is it going? I am 50 and just started as a postpartum nurse, I hope to train to labor next year. I worry about age bias. Any reason to worry?

    How to pick yourself up after bad day

    Ok but its hard to realize there is only so much you can do, when you are legally obligated to chart and its important to chart and account for everything that happened with the patient. How do you prioritize charting and patient care on busy days?

    I am on my second year and I just switched from nights to days. I now have new stress just as I was beginning to manage the work load at nights, but I had to change to days because I was tired of feeling like a zombie. I also am stressed because th...

    Need input! Whats your experience with critical thinking?

    This is the aspect of critical thinking that is difficult for me as a new nurse. As a nursing student it was always emphasized that we should be thinking independently about the needs of our patient. We did not interact too much with doctors. Now,...

    Older Students - 40 +

    I started this forum when I was in nursing school, and now I am almost done with my first year working the floor on a MedSurg unit (I am 49). I had struggles in nursing school with being older and having more world experience than my instructors (I ...
  11. When I give meds I think of why I am giving the med and how it effects the patient. This is a really good suggestion - its what we did in school - Funny that I have forgotten to do that!

    Older Student - And So It Begins

    If you have back and hip issues start finding an exercise regime to strengthen your body. You can't work when you are hurt! Find a massage therapist and take care of yourself and you will be fine.

    What did you do before nursing?

    I worked in international development for 20 years, following my passion to live in and help poor countries. Then I wanted to come home and live in and help my own. I was a massage therapist and a yoga instructor for 4 years and found myself curiou...

    Older Students - 40 +

    We are all nursing students, but some of us have come to this as a second or third career. Looking for age-peers. This forum is not a place to complain about, judge or idealize people of any age going to nursing school. Just to share experiences i...

    I was so glad to see these posts! I am about to turn 46 and to start my 3rd quarter of a BSN program (that will mean one year down and two to go!) I love the program and I like my cohort but I am feeling socially isolated - I have had lots of expe...
