I'm currently in nursing school
and will graduate with my BSN in less then 2 years. I have been looking at necklaces with the caduceus symbol on them or as some know, the "medical symbol." I'm very passionate about nursing and am extremely proud to be in nursing school and working toward my dream job. I'm debating on buying this necklace with this symbol now, or once I graduate. Is it disrespectful to wear if not technically a nurse?

I think that's great!
If I was you, though, I would first do thorough research on the caduceus (also known as the staff of Hermes) vs the Staff/Rod of Asclepius before you buy one. I've personally thought of finding a Staff of Asclepius necklace to wear!!
