Nursing Trivia: The Nurse's Cap

Did you know that the nurse's cap is patterned after the nun's habit and that its original purpose is to keep the hair neatly in place and present a modest appearance?

In nursing schools, female students participate in capping ceremony (pinning for males) wherein they vow to behave ethically and honour the nursing profession. The ceremony also seeks to encourage students to persevere despite the hardships they encounter in nursing school.

The nursing cap, a widely recognized symbol of nursing, is no longer used in the United States and Europe. This once emblematic part of the nursing uniform is now regarded as a potential carrier of disease-causing pathogens. Although still being used in developing countries such as the Philippines, the nurse's cap lost its popularity to "scrubs" as early as late 1980s.
