    Fake Nails on Nurses, Yay or Nay?

    I was just wondering what everyone thought about nurses having gel or acrylic fake nails. There are a few girls on my unit that have them. I wanted to know what people's opinions were or if your unit or place of work has a policy about them. ~Jes~ (sorry all i don't know how to make a poll on here.)

    Nursing and tattoos

    i unfortunately don't have any tattoos yet. But i'm just trying to decide on the exact design i want. I do however have my ears pierced 13 times (7 in my left, and 6 in my right) As well as my nose. All of which i wear at work, and i've never had a patient say anything bad about my piercings, they actually work quite well as conversation starters

    Job interview jitters

    i just don't want to end up getting hired, and show up with my piercings, and have them say, wait you didn't have those when we hired you. It's also a great hassle to take them all out. But i suppose it's something that i can deal with taking out for one interview, then bringing up the question during my interview. Thanks all for the tips. I'm now off to bed to get rested up for my interview is tomorrow morning.

    Job interview jitters

    I've never had any of my instructors voice a problem with my piercings, and none of the units that i have done placements on (including maternity) have said anything about my earrings. Do you guys think that i should keep them in, and then ask what their policy is during the interview?

    Job interview jitters

    When you say no jewelry, i have a question there. i have my ears pierced 13 times (7 in one, and 6 in the other) I've never had a problem anywhere that i've done my clinical placements, relating to my piercings. They're all very plain looking studs, nothing dangly or outrageous. but my question is should i keep them all in for the interview? And then just ask about their policy with piercings?
