Is this badge holder too morose? - Page 3Register Today!
- Jun 24, '12 by frankie,RNi think OP's badge kind of looks like the angel of death. not sure i'd be ready for that visit if i'm a patient.
- Jun 24, '12 by sapphire18Yes, it is definitely unprofessional- why would you wear something with a skeleton on it while caring for people who are potentially fighting for their life??
The "choose juicy" one is also definitely a no-go...most places don't allow brand names on employee clothing.
The cloth ones are also a fun-factory for bacteria. You need something that you are able to clean off with an antibacterial wipe. Trust me.
- Jun 24, '12 by PneumothoraxQuote from kayruhhI love juicyI didn't know a badge hold was such a big deal. Sheesh. And no I'm not over that juicy crap yet. I actually like juicy couture merch
I just wear the LifeFlight one I got lol.... & I def make sure my Id badge and all items associated with it are easy to clean lol

- Jun 24, '12 by PrimaFaciei've seen so many cutsie type things on uniforms that could potentially harbour bacteria and i just don't get why a nurse, who is supposed to be advocating for their patients would choose to endanger patients and themself just to be all b[color=#00ffff]edazzled at work.
maybe i have a stuffy, not-so-fun attitude about it but if you have to ask if it's ok, it probably isn't.
dress for work professionally while considering safety.
- Jun 24, '12 by kayruhhI can understand the skeleton. I wasn't thinking when I posted this. It represents death to well. But I don't see a problem with wearing the Rosie the riveter one or the others as long as I got the ones without the crystals. I think you should be able to portray your personality a little.
- Jun 24, '12 by PrimaFacieis it really your personality portrayed, when you snap on an item with logo/saying/artwork of some company?
rosie the riveter is a cultural icon of the united states, representing the american women who worked in factories during world war ii, many of whom produced munitions and war supplies.
how is that your personality or even anything related to nursing?
if you want to be unique, or authentic, make it something about you.
- Jun 24, '12 by FlyingScotI like the ones that are flowers made with vial caps. Plus they are easy to clean!
- Jun 24, '12 by IndyElmerQuote from kayruhhI'm glad you asked about the skeleton cameo as I ended up learning something new. Although I do like sparkly things, I haven't seen any "bedazzled" badge reels that appealed to me (yet). While I had considered that a bedazzled one might be harder to clean/sanitize or might be scratchy if accidentally rubbed against a patient's skin, it hadn't occurred to me that the sparkly bits could pop-off potentially causing a host of other problems.But I don't see a problem with wearing the Rosie the riveter one or the others as long as I got the ones without the crystals.
