I am currently looking to go to uni and do a mental health nursing degree, the only issue is that I have a small wrist piercing, a wrist piercing and various other piercings etc.. being a mental health nurse, will I be allowed my visible piercings, if I can cover them up etc, or is there a zero tolerance on things like this? Would I be better doing a psychology degree?
I am not a psych nurse and have a microdermal on my wrist as well. No one knows its there unless they know me from outside of work. For work, I take the top off and wear a watch over the anchor.
I also have several tattoos all in easy to cover areas and no one knows they are there. You can have both and be a great nurse. Cover them up and no one will ever have to know
I also have a tiny nose stud. I put a clear retainer to keep the hole patent. Not a problem at all. Good luck
