Mature Aged Student Nurses – Grad Success Series

In the nursing industry, there is a common misconception that being a mature-aged candidate is a disadvantage when applying for jobs. However, in this episode, I challenged this belief and highlighted the advantages of being a seasoned human in the nursing industry.

I addressed the myths surrounding age and experience in the field, arguing that ageism is not prevalent in the industry. Instead, I emphasized the value of life and career experience for mature-aged job applicants. 

In conclusion, the nursing industry needs to shift its perception of mature-aged candidates and recognize the unique strengths and skills they bring to the table. Make sure to listen to the full episode as I offer valuable insights and perspectives on how to harness life experience and maturity as a superpower in the nursing career.
