    pain meds while working?

    Hi tattedRN, have you thought about contacting the BON either by phone or going in person for answers? They would be the ones to give you accurate answers. Good luck!

    Tattoos in the workplace

    I never said anything about wearing long sleeves and infection.. I said it's an extra barrier between my skin and any body fluids. Following universal precautions should prevent the spread of infection regardless of what I'm wearing. Anyone who wears long sleeves in place of following these precautions is not very smart. I'm actually more worried about my shoes and pants rubbing against the beds and spreading anything than I am my arms, to be honest. Also, that's exactly why I bring an extra set of clothes with me every day. If anything does splatter on me (which is more than likely to happen against the 80% of my body that is covered with scrubs) then I can change.

    Tattoos in the workplace

    That's exactly what I said. It's NOT professional, the same as wearing low cut shirts, anything see through, tight form fitting clothes, fake eyelashes, etc. There's a certain time and place for everything and when I'm at work I'm an RN and I play the role and I have no problem doing so :) I can express myself on my own time. My comment about my tattoos was aimed towards those commenting about them being tacky, because I don't think they are. They also aren't professional the same as flip flops and ripped jeans wouldn't be when going to an interview.

    Tattoos in the workplace

    I'm covered in tattoos, I definitely don't feel they are tacky in any way whatsoever. I actually have spent thousands on my ink as I did my research and found a really great artist who actually put a lot of thought and detail into my pieces. My work doesn't care about tattoos showing.. I have never heard any older person complain about them either. Everyone walks around with them exposed. Now, with all that being said, I still wear long sleeves to work regardless. I feel much more professional with them covered and honestly I'd rather not have my tattoos be the focus of anything work related. I'm not there to converse about them or talk about their meanings or let them be a distraction for any reason... I'm there to work. Not only that, but I'd rather wear long sleeves and have that little extra barrier between body fluids and my skin.

    I can't remember the start dates that they quoted on the application.. I believe it said February though? And as far as new grad pay I have no idea either. I'm not much help lol. Please let us know how your interview goes!! Do you have a BSN, and are you in Tucson? Also, did you do a phone interview or did they just call to set up an in person interview? Good luck to you!!!
