I have worked with a few old school nurses who weren't their anymore and they were making BIG nursing mistakes, but they still have the licenses. Now as hard as it to get one do you feel that they should be forced into retirement and stripped of their licenses?

Running for a comfy chair and popcorn for the fireworks that are sure to begin.

But I'll bite...any nurse who is making 'BIG nursing mistakes' cannot hide for long. Others will notice and report it. From there its up to the powers that be, what happens to said nurse..no matter WHAT his/her age.

I've seen young nurses make BIG nursing mistakes. Should they be fired too?

Any licensed individual who is making "BIG" mistakes should be investigated for capacity to practice safely, regardless of the individual's age. This is not necessarily an age-related issue. However, newer, younger nurses should keep in mind that, eventually, it will be you the newer, younger nurses are criticizing because they want your job ...

I don't think the OP is even a nursing student.

My apologies if I'm wrong.

Given the large number of grammar, punctuation, and spelling mistakes in the original post -- I'm not so sure the OP is someone I would trust with much responsibility for other people's welfare. Maybe he/she is someone that other people are trying to get rid of.
