Our facility is allowing us to celebrate Nurse's Week this year (as opposed to no recognition for the past 2 years) with a theme week. One day is "Professional White (caps optional)". I have not worn white since 50 lbs ago and my cap is in my Halloween box. Our graduating class "76 BSN ASU" voted to be pinned rather than capped because of the connotation of caps --http://www.civilization.ca/hist -- and the professional image of nursing.
Any suggestions for my attire that day?
My ideas are not practical--either a professional suit (shoes would kill me and environmental factors would not be conducive to work) or a dingy white uniform stained with various bodily secretions and an askew cap tangled with IV tubing or perhaps in the grip of a violent patient.
