Hi, my name is Kimberly. I'm new here and was hoping someone could help me out. I'm 16 (turning 17 in October) and I just started taking a CNA class at my high school. It requires we spend 5 days doing clinical before we take our CNA test in the Spring. I'm really serious about having a job in the medical field in the future (namely the emergency room). However, I've had snakebite piercings (two lip studs) for a long time and I'm a bit hesitant to take them out. I am willing to take them out if that's the last resort, but I'm looking for other options as well. I've been looking online and I found some clear colored and flesh colored bioplast lip studs that you can use to hide your piercings for work, school etc. My CNA teacher told me that I either had to take them out or cover it up with a band-aid, and even so I'm sure I can tear a bit off and cover the hole and place a little make up over it to help hide the little scars the piercings left. My piercings are also completely healed (I've had them for months now). I'm not quite sure if clear retainer studs could help me out or let me do clinical and work as a CNA, but just hearing a little feedback would be nice. Thank you!
