    How did we go to talking about nose piercings to lack of respect?!? While I don't have a nose ring, I do have an industrial in my one ear (see pic for those not familiar. http://,r:0,s:0

    I did not have the piercing in nursing school as I was well aware I would have to take it out everyday for clinical. As soon as I graduated, I got my piercing and I've had no issues. Sure, pt's and families notice it sometimes, but I hope they are judging me on my pt care and my character and not on one piercing I have. If anything, 90% of people ask me "did that hurt?" I feel that majority of of people have no issues with it. I do try not to draw attention to it at work, but when I have my hair up, it tends to be visible more.
    That's what I'm saying. Ok there are some piercings that would make someone not want to be helped by you, but if it's nothing drastic or even if you have tattoos showing but you are competent with you job...what's the problem? And as far as a safety issue...well patients can pull on your earring of your ear too. So why does it make a difference whether there is one on your nose vs. your ears?
