    Possibly.

    But then again, i'm sure the same thing was said about nursing image when they started wearing scrubs.

    [B]I'm sure there is a world of difference when going from cute little white dresses and dainty little oh starch me so heavy caps gave way to scrubs, and painting and piercing one's body...wearing scrubs, never thought of as less than professional in my 30 years of practice, pales in comparison to a multi-pierced and painted nurse who looks as if they just left the killing fields of Borneo. Real drech...

    Nothing wrong w/ piercings or tattoos- but let's keep them out of sight while we're at work.
