Christian nurse takes crucifix row to tribunal


If the uniform policy is no necklaces then that is the uniform policy, no exceptions should be made. Additionally I think that from a safety point of view, necklaces should not be worn anyway. I saw a 'male nurse' in my clinic recently, dressed in a navy blue nurse's tunic top complete with fob watch. Somehow I just knew he wasn't a 'proper nurse'. The piercings, tattoos, multiple earrings, chunky bracelets and huge wrist watch somehow gave him away! Did I mention the nicotine stained fingers? Sadly, members of the general public may not have realised he wasn't a qualified Nurse, further tarnishing our image.
