About Midlife Nursing

About the Creator

midlife nursing. you are never too old to be a nurse.

Hi! My name is Jackie and I am a nursing school graduate with my BSN and am currently licensed as a Registered Nurse. I have worked in healthcare since 2016 with experience working in dialysis, long and short-term care, IMCU, and behavioral health. In a past life, I went to beauty school and graduated with a degree in Cosmetology. I was 21 years old when I go my license as an esthetician in the state of California, and I still maintain that license today.

Currently, I am working as a Couplet Care nurse. This type of nurse works on a Mother-Baby unit side by side with Labor and Delivery. So I am essentially both a postpartum and nursery nurse combined. This was my absolute dream job. It is why I went to nursing school in the first place. To have landed this job as a new grad, I couldn’t be more blessed and grateful.

Who is welcome here?

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 my blog called Midlife Nursing?

I started nursing school at 33 years old. At that time, I 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.
