I have witnessed numerous nurses lately, while in the hospital/ER (different times) with my 24yo daughter who was the patient (giving birth, bacterial infection, etc...) and I was utterly shocked at the appearance of some nurses. Hair not being pulled back is one thing, but buckets of make-up and teased hair ala-Snooki while caring for patients? Some looked like they were going to a club -- and this was 10:00am! (And it was the head floor nurse with the Snooki bump!) Another had tattoos, some on her neck...it just all seemed so unsanitary and unprofessional to me. Is this the way things are now? I was pursuing nursing school
, but have shifted to another allied health field. Maybe at 50 I'm just an old fogey? I thought hair pulled back was a standard sanitary requirement -- almost like food workers. No?

Having hair and makeup done is a personal choice and does NOT affect anyone's professional performance in any shape or form. Just because someone is a nurse doesn't make them no longer a human being. Frankly I'm disgusted with your judgmental assumptions.
