    To the OP, during nursing school clinicals and job interviews I would wear it more conservative and avoid styling it into a faux-hawk so that potential employers and clinical instructors can focus on your abilities and not your hair. During clinicals and job interviews they are looking for modest hair styles and being clean shaven so that patients can focus on the care you provide them and are not distracted by your appearance.

    Once you are done with school and are hired at a facility as an RN then feel free to bring back the faux-hawk at work. On a personal note, I think it looks cool and depending on the setting you work in you might find your patients really like it too (For Example: I work in Child/Adolescent Psych. and the kids I work with would really like it but it might not go over so well in LTC/Skilled Nursing Home setting). Best of luck!

    And the OP states he has had this haircut since he was a small boy and has grown into it. I doubt that is the case. Usually we grow OUT of things rather than IN to them. Especially haircuts.

    I remember when my barber refused to renew my flat top. explained that just wasnt working for me as I got older, fine on little boys and retired marine, but as a guy in my 30's it was time to reconsider my doo. He was right.

    You might be surprised. I'm a female and my hair is cut short (like guy short) and the very ends are blonde. My residents at the LTC facility I work at love it.
