  • Are you ever too old to provide care for others? What do you think?
    Q&A: Do my employers think I'm too old?
    I'm nearing my 50th birthday, and I'm worried my employer may think I'm getting too old to keep up with my duties or stay on top of the latest procedures and technological advances. How can I make sure no one thinks it's time to "put me out to pasture?"

      Personally, I don't think 50 is too old. In fact, when I graduated nursing school (at 30), I graduated with an LPN that had returned for her RN and she was 50 then!

      I am 58 and still working full time as a RN/unit care coordinator, putting in 40++ hours every week. My employer prefers experience that comes with age. We have one nurse older than me and she is still working full time on the floor as a staff nurse.

      I think it's more about work one point out of 50 staff in Neonatal ICU, I was the only nurse under 40!

    WEGO Health #NHBPM: Dear Newbie
    Today's WEGO Health prompt: Advice for new doctors or nurses (Bonus Prompt) This post could be lengthy. I'll try to keep it succinct and memorable. For new doctors: 1) You should have completed nursing school first. (Sorry, couldn't resist...) 2) Experienced nurses know more than new doctors about how medicine works in the real world.
  • Please give your input on this's about employer-mandated influenza vaccination:
    Does "Protection" Lead to Risky Behaviors?
    No, this post is not about condoms...whatever the title may bring to mind. This is about vaccination. Specifically, mandatory vaccination of healthcare workers at hospitals and other facilities.
    • Barbara Wallerton commented
      I for one have always had my vaccines regularly so I believe that this would have no effect on a person like myself, but a great article none the less.
    • Pam Watters commented
      I also have also always had my regular vaccines and it does not affect my standard of care, but this was a very interested post. Thanks Jessica!
    • Robschi robschi commented
      As the flu vac isn't infalliable, I don't think that it would lead to riskier behaviors. Vaccine or not, I still don't want someone coughing or sneezing in my face!

    Top CE courses for CNAs
    Certified nursing assistants (CNAs) spend countless hours tending to the nitty-gritty of patient care, especially in this age of healthcare, when paperwork and other duties pull nurses away from the bedside. Several states, including Florida, Delaware and California, require CNAs to earn continuing education credits each year.
