You could wear your ring on a necklace…

My SO’s mom is a nurse. She has a high profile ring and says it has torn a few gloves but not many. I guess it depends on how the prongs are set. Maybe you could get a “work” ring that is just a band

Get whichever one you like! From an infection control standpoint, I personally don’t wear my engagement ring to work (I’m not a nurse but I do work in healthcare), most married people I know wear a smooth band while at work and save the fancy rings for all other times. Good luck in school!

I’m a pediatric nurse. At my hospital, we are allowed to wear our rings. My ring is set a little lower (in between #1 and #2). I love it and only run into problems when I put on my ring if I’m not paying attention, where my glove will get caught on top of my ring and I’ll just have to smooth it out a little bit to put my glove on all the way. It’s not a huge issue by any means. Overall, your ring policy will depend completely on the hospital/institution, rather than the actual unit (pediatrics, med/surg, ICU). However, the OR has a no rings policy where I work so there you would definitely have to leave your ring at home/in your locker.

I am a pediatric nurse and we all wear our rings. I worked in a surgical/cardiac ICU for years before this and we all wore our rings there too. At the two hospitals I have worked foor the only units that say absolutely no rings is OR and NICU, but as others have said this is so unit specific.

Good luck picking, and go for whatever you really like best!

not a nurse but i do work in the lab. of all the hospitals ive been in rings are allowed. i get nurses and cnas from all floors coming down to pick up units of blood and they wear their rings. what i can warn you about is that with the constant changing of gloves you can start to loosen the prongs, ive even heard stories of stones coming loose in the gloves and people accidently throwing them away. im currently in the market for an ering and i plan on getting a necklace to hold my big ring while i work and just wearing my band after im married. get any ring you want and work with it from there. no job should dictate what kind of engagement ring you wear.

@Catcat1:  i’m a nurse in australia and all my fellow nurses wear theirs even though the rules say no!

mine is high profile and I wear mine every shift and I have no problem….I say pick a ring you love because you will be married for more years than you will be a nurse!!

I’ve been engaged for almost a year and have never worn my e-ring to work!  My Fiance isn’t planning on wearing his band to work after the wedding, either (we are both nurses).  I’ve had a good friend throw hers out in a glove (and never found it) and another lose her huge center stone.  Yes, chances are you’ll be fine if you chose to.  But it’s never been worth it to me.
