Introducing myself and question about how to be a nurse with dreads and not upset the boss
Hey there...I am a physician (male) with dreads...have been growing them for 3 yrs. through my residency. I keep them pulled backed and tied in a bun (not courageous enough to let them fly). It is very obvious that they are there if you look...sometimes I am sure I even have a escapee popping out. I have been in the hospital with no issue at all (county hospital by the way). Those who notice them compliment them...some just say...oh, wow, are those dreads? I have fun with this one. I am also starting a new job this summer with what sounds like a simialr patient population...not sure how I am going to wear them...probably start the same way, tied back and bunned (a bit weird for a male maybe??)...I don't really care. I plan on wearing a shirt and tie, well shaved (well...trimmed beard that is) and my locks. I will hopefully someday just wear them pulled back and NOT tied in a bun...much easier. I am not anticipating any issues...we will see. RootsDr.
