A foreigner's nurse is a beauty. A man is handsome. - page 2

I want to contribute a new topic. But, my English won't be understood by many people. Many things which it wants to know occur in me. I have the catalog of Uniform. All the models are the nurses of... Read More

    When I get a catalog, I find the models intimidating and unrealistic, too!

    Super, super skinny with their shirt almost always tucked tightly in to their drawstring pants. I never ever, never ever tuck my shirt in when I wear scrubs. Most of the people I know look more like they are in their pajamas when they wear scrubs; not nearly as fashionable as the girls in the catalogs.

    Anyone seen the new catalogs with the "Dickie's" denim scrubs in it? I've seen those scrubs in several catalogs, but the newest one I received had 2 female nurses (one Asian BTW) and they had these really "tough" expressions. I think they were attempting sort of a grunge or punk look with the layout. It was very unusual.

    Recently, I eat a cheesecake too much, and I can't put on Uniform. I must become thin. I will do much work so that I may become thin. I run through the corridor. Then, I fall down.

    I don't think it is strange either! I think we should be encouraging topics and not judging their appropriateness. Kenshi brings up a good point. He seems to be questioning the uniform catalogue which portrays blond, western women to sell uniforms in Japan, where blond hair is not common. He is questioning whether a Japanese woman would look good in the uniforms. Why is that strange?No, it isn't. Many people think that the American blonde is the ultimate source of beauty, even in a society where it is foreign. I don't happen to think so. I think the blonde thing is overdone. A smart manufacturer will portray the usual customs and appearances of the people in the product he is trying to sell. Sounds like someone is using the "American Blonde" to sell in Japan. He also sites that the man is muscular-probably much bigger and more imposing than the usual Japanese male. Of course he would question this "Americanism" again. What is so strange about that? Kenshi, Please keep posting. Healthyone doesn't need to read this thread any further.

    I think that the model of Uniform of the blond hair is a beauty very much. The impression which a Japanese doesn't have is very attractive. Illness begins heartily. That is a very famous story in Japan. That is proved from the viewpoint of statistics as well. When it is cured, the impression of the nurse whom a patient saw is thought to be very important. Before, my my cold was cured in the hospital with the smile of the way nurse. I want to be such a nurse.

    Kenshi, you are adorable.

    I am a tall black female and I cannot wear some uniforms. I have to order men's from those catalog, because of my height.

    I saw this Japanese Uniform site. The nurses are in pastel colored uniforms even the caps are pastel. Is this common?

    The catalog of Japanese Uniform looks like a homepage of the bottom.

    A model is the nurse of the blond hair.

    Does such a nurse exist in Australia and America?

    Yes Kenshi, SOME nurses in Australia and America do look like those nurse's in your catalogue, although they do not pose the same.
    It is a very valid point that you should have ethnically appropriate people modelling in Japanese catalogues. I would hope that it is not a case of not thinking any race's appearance is superior, but these pictures are just culturally insensitive.
    By the way I have some Japanese and Singaporean nusing student friends and they are some of the most beautiful people I know.
    Take care

    Funny, the last place I worked at revised their uniform policy and it clearly stated that no tops were to be worn tucked into your pants. We had had it w/ this one. How ridiculous is that! When we questioned management, they ignored us or changed the topic...how typical. Needless to say, just one of the countless reasons I don't work there any longer.
    Anyway, perhaps the rationale was that that wanted everyone to look uniform. OK, then why not ask the nurses what they prefer, tucked or not? As long as it is professional, shouldn't a nurse be comfortable while they work.

    Perhaps, in the minds of the "suits" tucked in looks more professional. Uh, 'scuse me, not w/ my little buddha belly and J. Lo booty!

    Very few nurses wear dresses or skirts anymore. Bending over beds and working with patients is not easy with a short hemline. I saw nurses like that 20 years ago. But now, almost everyone wears scrubs with pants, shirts that go OVER the waist, and a cover jacket. After all, this is work, right? A model only poses. I love this topic. And am very interested in your culture. Thank you for speaking up!

    If I had a catalog business, I would call it "Real nurse" .....

    I can know an opinion from many nurses, and very happy. Thank you. Because it is often inappropriate, I am really sorry for my contribution.
    This time, I paid attention to the catalog of uniform, and contributed an opinion. It can get an opinion suitably if it argues with the Japanese nurse. But there was an opportunity to contribute it to this bulletin board (Because a word corresponds with Japanese, a problem doesn't take place for the interchange.), and it could get an opinion from many nurses as for other contribution as well. I appreciate it.
