but some cultures pierce their noses for religious ? whatever purposes

i see no problem with it but i am the supposed gen X

i can see how some pts would have a prob

for me as a pt i would love to see my nurse with tats and piercings :chuckle

in clinicals we are allowed nothing but the wed band ha ha ha i am not married and choose not to be but this is not offensive

being a nurse requires accountabilitly and subscribing to the norm is part of that

love it or leave it ???????? perhaps just hate it but at least abide by the darn rules until you are in charge :)

I live in an area where a huge number of physicians are from India and are Hindu...there are so many in fact, that most people around here are surprised when they get an American doctor...that is how heavy the population is here.

Most of their wives that are physicians are Pediatricians, and all of them have nose piercings.

I'm gonna bump this for the morning crowd.

Off the subject and I'm a newbie to forums, but what does BUMP mean? :uhoh3:

A bump is a post that just serves to move a thread up on the list of recent threads, so more people will see it.

A stud is one thing... but I'm not so sure a ring is such a great idea. I can guarantee you at some point a patient will grab it and pull.

*ouch*

Sorry- I wasn't specific. Not literally a ring. I actually want a microstud. It's tiny..almost like a fleck of glitter on your nose. Noone could possibly pull on that.

In our clinicals we are allowed to only wear ear piercings that are posts, one for each ear, no necklaces, braclets and only a wedding band. The purpose is for us to look professional and reflect a good image to our school.

We as a profession complaining that we are treating like professionals. How can we if we don't look and act professional. Jewelry to a minimum not to much, and esp. not piercing any where visible but 1-2 in the ear.

We don't see doctors and lawyers with too much jewelry, nose rings etc. People don't become CEO's of their company looking like_____ you fill in the blank. OK off my soap box.

Ok, that's better :)

But I gotta ask...

[old fart] Why not just put a speck of glitter on your nose? [/old fart]

Well I have no problem with it. In the NICU you cannot where ANY thing. Anything includes wedding rings and ALL earings. So all that crap would have to go on my floor. There is a huge risk of spreading infection with jewels.:twocents:

just for the record, I had one of those tiny, rhinestone studs in my nose, and I accidentally pulled it out blowing my nose, and wiping my face once. So, even though they are very tiny, they can still get caught on stuff and pulled. I would think if you had to wear a mask, you'd have to be careful.

I never thought that piercings would not be allowed but it makes sense if I were a patient.

I would prefer not to see all that.

Does that mean cartilage piercing should go also?

I have an old cartialge piercing with a tiny hoop that fits perfectly.

Would the hospitals not like that?

On that note, nail polish would also be a no go too?

I have a tongue ring and so far the only people that have complained were family members. My residents all think it is some strange newfangled thin us younguns do. Of course, if I get or spread a germ on or from my tongue ring I'd be doing something wrong.

I had one supervisor tell me I should take it out but I told her that, between the pain and the month of eating beans one by one d/t the swelling, the only way I would take it out would be if she could get it out herself before i bit her.:chuckle

Not really a nose piercing but a piercing so... [slap Self For Not Paying Attention To OP]

Professionalism means adopting that appearance that your grandmother would approve of...so a nose piericing is probably out...
