Tunic, badge and belt with silver buckle: should aesthetic nurses wear a uniform?

Tunic, badge and belt with silver buckle: should aesthetic nurses wear a uniform? In July, the Royal College of Nursing (2013) published guidance on uniforms and work wear, which clearly stated that when uniform is ‘not deemed appropriate, clothing should still meet certain essential requirements’. The rationale for a uniform refects the need to uphold nurses’ professional image, so why are aesthetic nurses who are trying to assert authority choosing not to take part in this? This article shares the thoughts of an aesthetic nurse on the need for uniforms in clinics and what her research has taught her about perceptions of this among her colleagues. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

In July, the Royal College of Nursing (2013) published guidance on uniforms and work wear, which clearly stated that when uniform is ‘not deemed appropriate, clothing should still meet certain essential requirements’. The rationale for a uniform refects the need to uphold nurses’ professional image, so why are aesthetic nurses who are trying to assert authority choosing not to take part in this? This article shares the thoughts of an aesthetic nurse on the need for uniforms in clinics and what her research has taught her about perceptions of this among her colleagues.
