Do you wear rings? - Page 4Register Today!
- Jun 17, '12 by CrazedOur program takes the guess work out of these questions and tells us we can only wear a plain band, and one set of stud earrings.
- Jun 18, '12 by ♑ Capricorn ♑Wedding band may be ok, but I do not think an engagement ring would be ok. I agree, wear it around your neck or leave it at home.
- Jun 18, '12 by RNsRWeQuote from staceymThe problem isn't really whether your diamonds are real. The problem with wearing the bands is an infection control issue, that's why I had posted to check with your schools to find out their policy. Many schools allow only a plain gold band, no engraving and no stones.I recently purchased a Cz eternity band on Amazon for like $15 to wear on clinical days. If that doesn't work or it bothers me, then I probably will just leave my wedding rings at home.
- Jun 18, '12 by >JustBreathe<My school allows one ring. But my wedding set is soldered so it's technically one ring. But it's high set and i would rather not have it on.
Do you have a "hiding spot" for when you keep your rings at home or just in the Jewelry box? I'm worried what if someone breaks in and steals my Jewelry. I'd rather not have them in the box and have a special hiding spot for them that is clever and only I know of. I don't want my kids finding it and messing with it or someone breaking in and stealing it. They are very dear to me and i would be heartbroken if they were lost or stolen.
- Jun 18, '12 by RNsRWeHiding spot? Nope, just in the jewelry box....or, sometimes, I put it/them on a little hook near my kitchen sink if I've got them on and plan to work in there. To be honest, I have some much more expensive pieces of jewelry as well as some extremely sentimental pieces that I'd be heartbroken to lose, and I'm not going to hide them all. I have more than one jewelry box, but they're all near each other, so if I'm going to get robbed, well, I'm going to lose alot. However, I don't live in an area known for much crime at all, so it's not an overriding concern. While it's true anything can happen, I like my odds
When going on vacation, I hide my stuff in a rather unique place that's anything but convenient to get to, lol, so I know my jewelry would be the LAST thing walking out the door if it came to that.
- Jun 18, '12 by HM-8404If I didn't feel comfortable leaving my valuables in my home, due to fear of a break-in, I would seriously consider moving. I would not want to worry if my stuff was safe every time I left home.
- Jun 18, '12 by tothepointeLVNWell you could live in a super safe area and still be paranoid. That happens sometimes
- Jun 18, '12 by >JustBreathe<Our area is pretty safe. I've got kids, if I didn't feel it was safe we wouldn't be here. My sister lives in a safe neighbourhood too. She left her house for 15 minutes and some thief turned her entire house upside down. You never know. What she thought was safe and what looks safe apparently was still vulnerable.
- Jun 18, '12 by decembergrad2011We were not allowed to wear any jewelry except for one pair of stud earrings and one plain wedding band. I got engaged halfway through nursing school and wanted to show it off to people a couple of times while I was in clinical, so let me tell you a little trick! My Cherokee scrub tops had three pockets at the front bottom - 2 big ones and one smaller one inside the right big pocket. I would simply take my ring box with me to clinicals. I could model the ring and show people, but then take it off, put it in the ring box, and place it securely in my small scrubs pocket.
I am a germaphobe when it comes to rings, and I basically left my engagement ring at home after the newness of being engaged wore off and everyone knew about it. I plan to do the same thing when I start working as an RN soon. It's just one more thing to have to worry about and I'm not too worried about the dating scene at the hospital
- Jun 18, '12 by brilloheadI don't wear rings, but several of my classmates with big diamonds just purchased a plain gold band to wear at clinical. Less infection risk without the nooks-n-crannies of a gemstone, and nothing to tear gloves or scratch a patient.
