I think cutsey scrub tops look ridiculous on adult units - page 8
The other day a co-worker strolled in wearing a scrub top festooned with furry, smiling teddy bears. On an adult cardiac floor...REALLY? On various adult units I've seen Looney Tunes, Precious Moments, rainbows and clouds,... Read More

I think a great majority of us have taken care of family and friends prior to our edu and licensing as RNs. While that experience will be rememberable for all, it was not very similar to the work of an RN except in caring and in that way, more.

we'll talk then.

This dismissal of aides is offensive. Mine are my eyes and ears, some more so than others, and they are worthy of respect and certainly have a place in the nursing environment.I thought I read CNA.
- 8Jul 3, '10 by fromtheseaRNQuote from GirlSmileythis is actually the first piece of cattiness i've seen in this thread.This is part of the reason I only come here to look at informative posts directly connected to the betterment of nurses and not to the petty and sometimes divisive nature that (sadly) often rears its ugly head. . There are people who are in dire need of caring and well-trained healthcare professionals, not people who are so paltry and whiny about, oh, no, SCRUB TOPS!! As long as the tops are neat and are within hospital regulations, why care? I have been in and out of hospitals throughout my life and I can't tell you what kind top the nurses assigned to my care were wearing. What stands out to me is the quality of care that was provided. I'm well aware of the rants and venting which are understandable, but scrub tops, really? Seems to me like the cattiness from the nurse's station may have spilled over to the message boards...

and it's just not cool to label the op as catty, since it shows a lot of naivete, arrogance and 'knowledge deficit'.
furthermore, i felt it was a valid observation, which merited an informed response.
but still, i'd like to know who's dismissing her cna experience?
and how is said experience relevant to the op??
