We sometimes hear a nurse referred to as “old school.” I take that to mean “in practice before the 1980s,” because that’s when I started!

I’m not here to stereotype or anything (and this list is made with love and respect), but I’ve gotta tell you, I’ve found certain things to be true about nurses who’ve been in the profession for, well, a while.

Here are a few observations that may help define the old school nurse! Is this you?

The old school nurse:

1. Still wears her hair ABOVE the collar at work.
2. Knows how to use a bath blanket and still prefers soap and water to body cleanser wipes.
3. Owns a case of white leather shoe polish for a VERY distinctive pair of lace-up nursing shoes.
