Christian nurse takes crucifix row to tribunal


I had been a student nurse way back years ago late 80's and have graduated but hadn't been in nursing work up to the present but still have the plan to work.. In my opinion during our nursing school we are taught that there will be no nail polish, only a short clean nails, a light make=up and no perfume, hairs are up if long hair with nurses cap on it, neat uniform well ironed, white shoes, and for jewelry a wedding band if married. And now it is up to the nurse whether she is aware what are the protocols of the hospital if there are any when it comes to jewelry like the necklace with a crucifix, yes i am a christian - catholic and have a necklace with crucifix owned by my late father but maybe for me i will not wear it while working also wedding band to prevent spread of infection, and what is really needed by a nurse only is a wristwatch with a second hand. If a nurse works in a office setting maybe necklaces are allowed and other jewelries as well as a clinical instructor but it depends..
