I'm curious if as a nurse I'll still be able to wear my engagement and wedding bands? I start nursing school this fall... Hubby was going to replace my wedding band for our 10th anniversary, but I'm not even sure if I can wear them? My engagement ring is a diamond flanked by sapphires and my wedding band is alternating diamonds and sapphires (right now it's white gold-- he was going to upgrade the setting to platinum)... Can you wear these as a nurse? Do I need to switch to a plain band?

It may depend on facility policy, especailly once you start working.My workplace only allows plain bands. Nothing with stones.Most girls just leave the bling at home. Think of what kind of nasty bugs would be hiding in your settings. Some wear their rings ona chain but one of my coworkers got hers broken when a patient grabbed it.
The plain band rule is vigorously enforced where I work.
