    Wow...if my place of employment told me I had to wear makeup to look more attractive I think I'd be calling the labor board, or an attorney, or someone!

    I second that. That is just offensive.

    Yeah, I have a good story about that garbage that I told in an "embarrassing interview" thread.
    It was over-the-top and many many years ago.
    I was super young and super stupid and there would be no way I'd put up with something like that now.
    Bottom line: your pts want someone who looks and smells clean and tidy.
    They don't care if you wear make-up.
    If an employer demands make-up and attractiveness, then it makes me wonder just who the heck I'm supposed to be trying to impress and look so smokin' hot for?!

    I imagine customer service???



    I do sometimes think this is possible- you don't see too many dumpy people getting hired right now- I see nice looking younger people. Co- incedence?? I think not.

    Seriously- service industry. think hotel staff, airline flight attendents, etc.

    Operative word now- Nursing is a SERVICE industry.

    LOL

    Yes! it is! Why are people so upset to be considered a service industry?? Why get upset when people ask us to "fetch" things, as if we are a waitress. It is part if our job as it is part of MANY peoples' jobs. If there are nurses out there that hate people and hate customer service, why are they a nurse?! Think about how the entire country has to be a hospitality service now: if your accountant, dentist, or staff member at your gym was rude to you, you would feel upset! There are plenty of options out there and you can take your business elsewhere. Same goes for a hospital! I don't want my nurses being rude to me, and since I have a choice, why wouldn't I chose a friendly place? Granted that it also gives good care.

    Unbelievable that some nurses on this site think they are above being a servant occasionally. And above wearing a uniform because "that's what people at Walmart do". Well, so do marines and police officers. Service is part of our profession! Man up and put a smile on your face!! Your patients need some kindness in their lives.

    Sure! not a problem to be a servant! But when being a servant interferes with my job which is to care for medical patients that's where the line should be drawn.

    Back to the uniform conversation :-)

    Very true! They will have to wait to get fresh ice for sure! But I don't think nurses are above uniforms either. I would def not compare us to a McDonald's employee. Which someone said earlier.
