    You delivered some sound advice. I also urge you to take your own advice and worry about yourself. I sincerely thank you for the comments you've contributed to this discussion, because without the input of certain touchy members, this thread would have never ballooned into a nearly 300-response epic.
    My advice throughout the thread has been sound, and it really doesn't apply to me as this subject predominantly concerns women, not men. I care little about who gets hired as long as they are professional looking --not wearing globs of makeup, or dressing in wrinkled, stained scrubs, or being grossly obese, etc. If any of the above applies to you, then any touchiness you are perceiving may be projected. Just a thought.

    In the mean time, I think the young and good looking generally are more deserving and capable.

    I found this thread invigorating and I think it's a shame that due to the touchiness of posters like yourself, the moderators had to heavily edit the thread and censor the discussion (at your own begging, I presume). C'est la vie. No one wants a good discussion these days.

    RNdynamic, just wondering why you presume the young and good looking are more deserving and capable? Looks can be deceiving. While I would agree that you should be presentable AND that employers may also be unconxciously biased toward looks, good looking has far to do with the actual quality of their nursing care or aptitude for the work.

    Guess this means that all imperfect nurses better step aside for all the young ones. Remind me never to need an inpatient stay if that happens.

    I really wonder why you think young and good looking are more deserving and capable. What exactly do age and looks have to do with ability to do a competent job? I'd really like the links to studies showing that.

    Nope, none of the above applies to me.

    You are certainly entitled to your opinion. Meanwhile, I suspect you're purposely throwing 'virtual' stones into the crowd to generate unfriendly responses from the membership when you made that statement about the young and good-looking.

    Your presumption is totally incorrect. I didn't beg anyone to censor, edit, or delete anything. I'm a chooser, not a beggar.

    Good-bye and be sure to enjoy the ride into the sunset. Members who drum up mean-spirited posts, unfriendly debate, baiting, personal attacks, name-calling, insults, and condescension are not really welcomed around here, anyway.
