    Is 54 too old as a new RN?

    Thank you! I don't feel old nor do I look my age. I have decided I am going to retest again and when I get my license I will find a job. Once I do, I will definately post an update. Thank you so much for the positive words.

    Is 54 too old to get hired as a new RN?

    Yes, taken more than once. After I didn't pass the first two times I had decided I wasn't going to humiliate myself again by failure, so I refused to test again. Life went on. After caring for my husband, I decided to try again. I have been studying since December and I was ready. I should have changed the date due to my husband having radiation however, I listened to him and didn't. That was my mistake. Thats why I wanted to know how difficult it would be to get a job at 54.

    Is 54 too old to get hired as a new RN?

    I have been out of school for a while, graduated in 2011. For the last 3 years, I have cared for my husband after he was hit on his motorcycle Jan 2017, 11 months later found out he had sarcoma, now a year later found out it's back. He just finished radiation for the second time in a year. So the last three years I haven't even attempted to test until recently which was on the same day as his first radiation this go around. He didn't want me to change it, although I know I should have. My mind was not totally on the exam. I know I would have passed had I my mind not been elsewhere. Thanks for all the input. By the way, I don't look my age and I'm pretty active. Also, I do live in a rural area and they always have positions at the nursing home but it seems that the hospital RNs are required to have experience. There is another hospital 40 mins from me if I wanted to go that far.

    I am 54 y.o., and studying for NCLEX again. So with that, I ask...what is too old to get hired as a new RN and/or get in a nursing residency? I don't want to continue to study, pay for testing and work on getting my license, if I'm too old to get a job. Any advice & information would be great.

    help with getting back to study for nclex

    Mark Klimek is the way to go. I also use ReMar for more content and Uworld for questions, since I have been out of school since 2011. Testing soon and I feel more confident than ever before.

    Congratulations! Super excited for you. Hope this next go around turns out as great as yours. Would it be possible for you to share your Mark Klimek with me?
