Can posing for a magazine on the side negatively impact me getting a job?

Long story short. I am thinking about posing for Playboy while I'm in nursing school just for fun. My main concern however is, if my future employer stumbles across my pics and if it will negatively affect me getting a job as a nurse.

Possibly. I personally wouldn't do it for the risk of it counting against my "professionalism"

I wouldn't recommend that line of work unless that's what you want to do full time.

Also why do it for fun, you might as well turn that into a profession and actually be a model rather than go through the rigor of nursing school.

I wouldn't risk causing difficulty in your nursing career. Besides that, I am sure that Playboy is very selective on their models. It is not as if you can call up Playboy and say "Put me in your magazine" and they say "Sure, we will leave a spot for you in the next edition."

Seriously. What do you expect a group of professional nurses to say?

Grow up. You don't do that kind of thing just for fun. You do it for the money or the "exposure".

I smell a Troll.

PA has a moral turpitude clause. You may be ineligible for a nursing license subsequebtbti this choice should you meet the editor's criteria. You can't randomly just show up at the magazine and say hey I want to pose.

Playboy usually has naked women, so, if I was the hiring manager and I saw your naked in a magazine, I would politely say "Hun, thanks for considering our institution, but we had to go with a different candidate, who has bigger boobs". But in all seriousness, no, do not do it. Think of it this way, even if you do get hired, what if your patients see your picture? Or patients' families?

I have absolutely positively no problems with Playboy or anyone who chooses to pose in Playboy - I think as a society we are way too uptight about the naked body and way too judgmental.

That being said, of course there is a chance it could be detrimental to your career.

Does anybody buy that magazine anymore? If so...why? With internet and you can look at naked girls anytime you want to...for free!

I would think peoples FB posts, snap chat etc could do more damage. Lol...I haven't heard anybody reading or buying a playboy since the 90s..
