    I'm assuming since you're judging your coworkers' bodies that YOU have a stripper physique?
    Dang skippy. My physique will strip paint.


    Lighten up, Francis.

    Personally, I see nothing wrong with it exotic dancers/ burlesque. You'd probably be surprised to learn how many lawyers, nurses, doctors, etc made a living this way. The only mistake she made is involving the media. If you're going that route....be smart about it and keep quiet.

    Very entertaining post - where do I deposit my dollar bills??? LOL

    I agree with the "live and let live" bunch - but (you knew it was coming, right?) there is always a 'gotcha'.

    Part of the hiring process these days is a check on social media to see what that potential employee has left flapping in the social network. If this doesn't pass that employer's 'smell test', your application will stop at that point. There is no way you'll ever be able to prove exactly why it stopped. So, if you're a big-time pole dancer, founding member of the Young Socialist League, or ardent supporter for legalizing personal drug usage.... it will be discovered and have an effect on your employment opportunities.

    Me? heck, even though my pole-dancing days are long gone, I certainly wouldn't have wanted my nursing colleagues to know about it. It's hard enough to establish professional credibility with peers, physicians and other clinicians. I certainly wouldn't want to undermine it by presenting such a confusing message.

    Applause for this post - I'd give it a thousand likes if I could. It is genuinely distressing to me to see so many seemingly unaware of the ways in which they hurt their own credibility.

    When people go against social norms there's a sort of, I don't know...push...for you prove you aren't ashamed of what you're doing. Frequently that push means being as public as possible, consequences be damned.

    I can imagine someone who would agree to be featured In an article like this would say "Well, that's fine if they don't hire me. I am who I am, and I don't want to work for someone who's closed-minded" yadda yadda yadda.

    That's perfectly fine. I'm sure there are plenty of stripper nursing students who keep things private and would love to work for that closed minded employer.

    When I went to Vegas, I attended a burlesque show at the Luxor. I never been to one before and since a. we were in Vegas for the first time and b. the slot machine let me win a couple hundred dollars in quarters, we decided to splurge on burlesque tickets and a nice dinner. Yes, there was partial nudity (topless only), but the production was actually very tasteful and well done. I was rather impressed.

    However, I agree about the media: by getting the media involved, the dancer/nursing student has now invited judgement to be passed on her and her activities. I fear that not all of this judgment will be fair to her, but she did invite it. It's part of the consequences of her actions that she will have to deal with.

    One thing that would worry one is what happens when a former "client" or whatever shows up as an inpatient one day and assumes the nurse in question is no better than she should be and makes lewd demands. Things like a bed bath complete with "happy ending", that sort of thing. Worse if the said nurse had been quiet about her previous (or current for that matter) source of extra income and now the patient either begins to make insulting comments or even goes for extortion.

    Doubtful. But it is a possibility. Even without people knowing her past she will still have perverted patients... I know I do.

    I get what everyone is saying about her degrading herself, BUT!!! We wipe butts for a living! We get thrown up on, spit on, pooped on, and have to take care of peoples private areas! Some people may view what we do as degrading. So yes she grinds on men and WOMEN (OMG, Yes women go to strip clubs too, whhhhaatttt ) and makes money for it!

    What about the women who strip for their boyfriends or non boyfriends, or women who have sex with their boyfriends/ non boyfriends. They arent married to these men. The only difference between a stripper/ prosititute and these women mentioned above is that they are smart enough to get paid for it. Who cares if multiple men see her naked. What if she has had 20 boyfriends in her lifetime that had seen her naked would it be the same??? Alot of the women on here have had lots of boyfriends/ sexual partners I am sure and its kinda like the pot calling the kettle black. The only difference is she is in the public and alot of others are in the private but that does not mean the private peoples Sh!t dont Stink just like hers.

    LOL. Sorry for the rant, but people judge and point fingers without fully accessing a situation. It doesnt hurt anyone what she does! This feels like a gay marriage debate lol.
    Wow. Step back and breathe, yeah?

    I didn't see anyone judging her. I saw many people, myself included, who had doubts as to this woman's ability to achieve her grand goals with her current employment considered. Rail all you want, but many large health corporations are becoming MORE conservative with their hiring policies, not more relaxed as society is.

    Regarding all those who keep their business in their bedroom, well, that was smart of them, wasn't it? I think an employer would view a committed couple doing their thang in the privacy of their house skips and bounds different than a woman (or a man, for that matter) bump-n-grinding for a living. If you really think getting freaky with your partner is equivalent to being a dancer or stripper, I don't know what to say.

    You offered a false equivalency.

    And no matter what anyone may say to me, my vocation to provide care to the ill, elderly, and infirm is never degrading. The fact that they may think it is, says worlds about how they view their commitment to their fellow humans, and their compassion.

    Although there were some who had doubts about her abilities to reach her goals others were judging her. I guess my definition of judging may not be the same as yours.

    Anyways, The comparision I made was pointed more towards the men or women who go out and have one night stands or have multiple committed boyfriends, ie. boyfriend for 3 months then on to the next one, not the people who are married or have been in a long long term committed relationship. In my opinion, being loose like that in the private is the same as doing it publicly, and like I said just because it is private does not mean that persons **** Dont Stink as bad as the men or women who ho publicly, yes I said ho. Lets just keep it real thats what it is, lol.

    Thanx for the reply.

    I got plenty of perves when I took care of adults. And I was never a dancer. And the sad thing is, society would allow extortion in this case? How is the nurse that used to be a dancer any worthier of being extorted than the guy that saw the show? If anything, she should extort him, he was stupid enough to pay for someone to pretend to be interested in him.

    There is a HUGE difference: Those who "ho" in private, are just that, private. As in, the employer will not know. It will not necessarily reflect upon the employer.

    A very public dancer/performer/stripper is, well, public, traceable, and will reflect upon the employer. Employers are getting serious about public image as clients become more choosy.

    Also, I really don't think a serial monogamous person is equivalent to a public, for-profit performer/dancer/stripper/"ho". One is a preferred style of relationship, and the other is a way to make money.

    Nice way of judging people who love and live differently than you. What, because a person chooses to sleep with more than one person a year makes them a "ho", regardless of if they were being paid?
