Who is welcome?
We are building a community of both prospective nurses, nursing students, and current nurses. However, of course, all are welcome, and we hope all walks of life can enjoy a little something about our content.
Why is it called Midlife Nursing?
The creator, Jackie, started nursing school at 33 years old. She felt that there wasn’t a “go-to” place for older adult nurses to get information and support.
Many people are starting to pursue a nursing degree in their mid to late 20’s and beyond. We also acknowledge that we work as nurses throughout our “midlife” years. Therefore, we believe our “midlife” years are the most exciting and are where the majority of our nursing careers reside.
