Christian nurse takes crucifix row to tribunal


When I trained in the 70's we were not allowed to wear jewellery, apart from a plain wedding ring and stud earrings. If the nurse in question really wants to keep her crucifix on her person she could keep it in her bra, that's what I do with my pentacle necklace. I don't know where that leaves men.. In our Trust we are not allowed to wear lanyards on our badges if we work in clinical areas. Tattoos and piercings do not affect a person's nursing abilities. I have neither, I'm not keen on either but how can they make someone a poor nurse? Let's celebrate our differences.
