Personal image is very imporant, does not matter how passtionate or great we are as a nurse

I agreed about dress code and personal image can effect the way our patient and their family members view us as nursing profession. I also have some colleages who thinks so simple about being profesional at work based on these things, not to the extreme point like the one you witnessed in your post, but they really make us feel uncomfortable about their appearance when they show up at work. Personal image is very imporant, does not matter how passtionate or great we are as a nurse; patient and their family members are deserved to be cared by a professional nurse who also cares about the way they appear everyday in the patient’s room.
