Dreads and the healthcare profession...


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Wind- I totally understand about the two year old....I used to have one....eventually traded him up for an 18 year old version. Sometimes I miss that little two year old version though. What a cute little bugger he was. sigh. children get older...and puppies turn into old dogs with grey muzzles and arthritis. life's a big circle....I will be my mother someday....and she will be my child...

alright...enough melancholy crap....I'll be looking for you later, when the kiddo goes out for the night. Its only 1:20 in the afternoon here, so I got time....

Life Issues Facing Dreads

@ Karl-Do you currently have dreads? Have you applied to nursing or medical school? I am going to earn my nurse practitioner masters by the end of 2014. I guess if its a problem then I'll find out during my clinicals...the biggest issue, it seems to me, is keeping them neat and tidy for clinical hours when I will be working with patients. I'm sure that the other healthcare professionals will have an opinion on my hair, but I care less about what they think than I do my patients.

I suppose that if I were to keep them swept back in a wrap or a scarf it would be ok. I don't want to have to have patients deciding if they want me as their provider based on my looks. That's sort of ridiculous. However, I guess that's the world we live in. Sadly.

Life Issues Facing Dreads

Hi all!

I am seriously considering dreads. The only thing that is keeping me from taking the plunge and making the commitment is...I know that a lot of people consider them to be "dirty" or a sign of the drug culture. I am a nurse and I am concerned about not being accepted by my patients. When I had purple hair I was often questioned by my patients regarding my nursing skills and competence because of the color of my hair!

I was wondering if any of you who are working in healthcare could comment on how your dreadlocks have impacted your ability to establish rapport and a working relationships with your patients. Is this a valid concern or am I just worrying about something that is not an issue. Thanks for your input.

Stacey
