Every Sunday when we serve we have to wear all white with the nurses' cap. Everyone on the nurses ministry hate wearing the hat for obvious reasons( falls off, gets dirty, ugly). I liked the hate during pinning but now I despise it. Another, issue some of us have is that not everyone on the nursing ministry are nurses. Some people are techs, respiratory therapists and secretaries. I feel they are misreprensented when wearing the nurses hats as everyone assume we are all nurses. We have voiced our concerns to the lead nurse in charge but she will not budge and forces us to wear the hats.
We wanted to make our case more prominant but couldn't find anything evidenced based or strong to make our case.
I'm happy to be serving and I mainly do this for my love for God. I know this is what He wants me to do.
Have any of you ever been forced to wear these hats? If so, how did you handle it?

People who are not nurses should not be referred to as nurses. Many states have laws against people who are not licensed as nurses representing themselves as nurses.
Also.......what is the function of the "nursing ministry"?
Back to the hat question........ I haven't had to wear a hat in years.
