i dont see anyone picking on anyone else.
i too work with a beautiful nurse who is meticulous about her appearance. i think thats wonderful. she always looks great.
i enjoy having style with my nursing costume. i try to look my best at work all of the time.
but i have to tell you that i am very careful of what i wear. i dont know about the rest of you but i get more than my share of sexual comments made to me. i hate that but other than telling the pt to knock it off there isnt much you can do. im just not going to wear anything that might bring more of that on.

l.rae, zebra striped undies under the whites...LMAO!!! Reminds me of the time, in my younger years, the residents at the hospital threw a kicka$$ party, and my girlfriend and I went from the party to my house, freshened up a bit, and went to work at 7am. I didn't have any clean uniforms, so I put on an older white pantsuit, forgot all about the zebra striped bikini undies I was wearing from the night before....LOL!!! Kept wondering why all the guys were checking out my a$$, until one of my co-workers said, Linda, did you know you are wearing..... LOL!!!
At least you made them smile.....PANTY POWER ROCKS...LOL :roll ......LR

I am glad to see white go-I have seen some nurses looking like an unmade bed wearing old stained white sweatshirts to work (they were white!) You can look good whatever you wear.I love the printed scrub tops and wear them with solid color pants.I wear a little makeup to smooth thtngs over. Patients do like to see you looking fresh and cheerful.

I work with a nurse, insists on coming to work in white high heel shoes, miniskirt, a ton of makeup and her hair teased up. I think she has some sort of porn nurse fantasy of herself that she needs to keep up. Obviously it takes a lot of effort to look the way she does, but she looks so strange with the makeup all caked on. She's a good nurse and does a good job, but it's hard for families to keep a straight face when looking at her. She's not young either, wears a lot of perfume, goes to tanning booths all the time, to keep up the ''look". I can see the bunions on her feet under those tight, pointy shoes. She looks like a cartoon.

If you are going to wear those thin white pants at least wear some pretty panties.
Unless you are a male!!!!!!

The uniform does not make the nurse, the nurse makes the uniform.

Jul 18, '02Occupation: Carpenter/part-time EMT Joined: Jun '02; Posts: 3To me, part of the reason I decided to begin nursing school, was the profound effect some nurses had on me during visits to the hospital. They were the ones with the sense of humor and the witty comments. I enjoyed those that were very self-expressive. I think that judging a nurse by their outward appearance is dangerous. Presently I am a CNA and I bring to work a very strong, "buff" appearance, but I can be just as gentle as any other nurse or tech on the floor.
