Old fashioned nursing uniforms
- 0Mar 27, '03 by RN from OZWhat do you all think of this...........
The Private hospital I work for is wanting to bring back the white dress and the nursing cap, as they believe that that is the reason that nurses have lost respect in the community.
I know that we have higher physical and verbal assult statistics than the police force, and visitors treat us like crap, but I do not think the cap is going to change all that much.

To start with the white dress is totally impractible, both in keeping it clean and the fact that its a dress. i know some nurses do wear skirts but most find it easier to work in pants. As for the cap, well anyone who would wear something that looks so rediculous does not deserve respect from the public. we're not nuns we're nurses.

I prefer to wear slacks to work, those bloody cullottes (? spelling!?)were hopeless when trying to go to the 'toot'. ( for our American pals, a 'toot' is a 'loo' aka toilet!) LOL ....
I've been 'victim' of the days of dresses & caps!!! NOW! THAT'S giving my age away isn't it? LOL

Does that mean I'll have to shave my legs?
I remember wearing a SHORT purple and white pinstriped dress when I did my training!!! And I'm NOT that old FYI!! What is wrong with scrubs? I think the theatre nurses like to be the only ones who get to wear them and I say it's time to revolt! I'm going into CSSD ( have I told everyone yet?) just so I get to wear scrubs!
