Name Tags - page 2

I just started a new job, and most of the nurses I work with have these super cute personalized name tags... They have their first name and RN or LPN in big cutsey font, with a picture of a nurse... Read More

    I think they are referring to a NAME TAG not the hospital issued ID badge.

    Anybody who is crafty could make one.

    Absolutely unnecessary.

    Agree 100% with you, Nascar Nurse!

    Wow. Some people just go above and beyond to be unkind. Anyways OP, if you find out, let me know! That sounds like a fun way to add some color and life to what can sometimes be a boring uniform.

    Try TRnametags or rainbow tags. They have changed the name I think but if you google TR nametags it should come up. They have "cutsey" and more "professional" choices.

    I have purchased my cutesy name-tags from an online retailer called Teddy's Rainbow (formerly known as TR Nametags). Click on the link below to get to their website.

    That's the one I meant! Teddy's Rainbow. Couldn't remember the name but I guess that's where the TR came from. Our department sends around an order form every so often and we have never had any problems. Good service and a quality product.

    That site is great! Thanks for the post. Wanting a cute name tag doesn't indicate an inability to function well as a nurse or a lack of knowledge. Cruelty to others for no apparent reason other than a difference in personal style, well that's another story. Not only should a nurse be competent, but caring. I am aware of dosimetric badges that measure exposure to radiation but am not yet aware of any that measure an understanding of the disease process. Enlighten me if I am mistaken.

    You know, I didn't ask to be harassed by my fellow "professional" nurses... Your post struck a nerve too...

    I'm in the PICU where cute is encouraged... If you would have read my post, I did ask my co-workers where they bought them from and forgotten, so I thought I'd come to a forum where I've gotten lots of help and support over my career for some help on somehow to fit into the culture of my new unit.

    Let's see. I apologized for my rant, in that very post. Sorry, that I struck a nerve with you, similar to the one your post struck with me.

    Professional and "cute is encouraged?" Guess, my nerves are still raw.

    Perhaps you should take a vacation if the word "cute" set you off to that level. It is a PICU, all their "clients" are children. Children like bright & shiny. No where does it say that a professional won't understand presentation of a disease process because they want a cute name tag. We nurses need to get over ourselves already with the "I'm a professional cuz I wear solid scrubs." Ya know what modern day docs do "cute" now too if it can get someone to smile. I saw two docs with a huge height difference between them dress up as the Jolly Green Giant & Sprout on an adult oncology unit while rounding. Their adult pts loved it, no one complained about unprofessionalism or demanded a new onc doc STAT.

    Can't we make work just a little bit fun. Who really cares what color your scrubs are. They probably just want their pain meds and a warm blanket these are my top two requests. Working on my top ten pt requests list lol
    I do think the RN. Needs to cover the entire name badge. With maybe my pic bottom left and first name bottom right. Though

    I was online looking up medical name tags and couldn't help but see your post. I had to look everywhere to find a place that would make me this type of tag.
    My girlfriend is a nurse and I ordered her a cutesy type of name tag from here: http://nametagcountry.com. Hope that helps!

    Anyone have one of these or something similar and know where I can get one?? I asked someone and they told me where they were from (someone ordered them off a website) and I can't for the life of me remember... I'm now off for 5 days and want to try and get one because they are so cute!

    Thanks for any help!
    They are cute for real but some hospital units see them as unprofessional. Sometimes it goes to personality. Not that it should.
