Yeah on our first clinical visit there was one... another nurse in our course leant over and said "I'd like to see how she gets on a bed to do CPR with that on". Other mistakes were the girl who wore brand new shoes and had blisters when we arrived at hospital, she looked shocked and surprised when she realised we weren't sitting down for the next two hours but walking the length of the hospital to talk to patients... oh and someone who wore a see through blouse - seriouslyI'm appalled I have to even mention the fact that girls shouldn't wear them to hospital placements. Alas, some do...
Our lecturers forced the males to wear ties to our hospital visits during Rural Week in first year... just sayingDepends on the hospital though. Have a look at what the doctors are wearing (pay more attention to junior docs since senior docs get away with being casual if they choose).
You'd be out of place with a tie in some hospitals and the infection control nurse may question you on the frequency in which you clean your tie .
We were at the same clinical school where at least two of the 3rd year female students had been sporting ties on more than one occasion.Well done, you're so hip!
Seriously though, I didn't realise girls could wear ties either. I mean, I'm a man and I avoid wearing them at all cost.
