THE IMAGE OF NURSING 2
The Image of Nursing You are marooned on an island with two other people. One of them is dressed in a captain’s uniform covered in medals and the other cast away is wearing a prison jumpsuit and is covered in tattoos. Which one of these people would you trust to lead you to safety, the captain or the criminal? The obvious choice is the captain because he looks like he knows what he is doing. His “image” broadcasts leadership and trust. This same situation can be applied to nursing. When it comes to medicine, people need someone they can trust. Trust starts with a positive image. Not many people will trust you if your clothes are dirty and old, or if your face is covered in piercings and tattoos. When someone’s well-being is at stake, that person is going to want a professional that knows what they are doing taking care of them. The first step towards being a professional is to look the part.

Acting professional is a key link to earning a patient’s trust and when a patient trusts
