In Europe nursing, especially in the past, great attention was paid to\u00a0describing and using professional Nurses Logo & RN Logo\u00a0in the education of nurses and celebrating occupational ceremonies, e.g., hatting, strapping, celebrating International Nurse Day, or anniversary holidays, such as the jubilees of the Polish Nursing Association (1, 2). Current requirements for the\u00a0nursing profession\u00a0are much higher. Society requires shaping the personal profile of the future nurse so that it enables the overall implementation of her professional tasks while meeting the expectations. An irreplaceable role here is played by the tradition presented as a concrete value worth duplicating throughout the whole process of nurse education.\u00a0Nurses Logo & RN Logo\u00a0are legible, specific characters accepted and recognized as important for this profession. They are: Nursing cap,\u00a0Nursing uniform,\u00a0Nursing anthem,\u00a0Oil lamp \u201cNightingale lamp\u201d. Nursing cap.\u00a0The first nursing cap, so-called Anti-dust was created before 1876 in the United States. It was worn by nurses at the Bellevue hospital. He was then a \u201cprotector\u201d of hair from getting dirty from sick patients, which was an important problem, because most women wore long hair. These caps covered the entire head, over time their shape changed, but the color remained unchanged \u2013 white with a surrounding black velvet. In the most modern version, the cap covers part of the hair, and its meaning is symbolic and informative. He assigns the person wearing it to the professional group of nurses. The material most commonly used to make the (\u00a0Nurses Logo & RN Logo) cap were: muslin, canvas, lawn, organ, plastic (3)Depending on the type of material from which the cap was made, it required special handling, i.e. washing, heavy starching and ironing.\u00a0It was obligatory to whiten and disinfect the cap. \u201cIn Europe,\u00a0caps were worn by students of the first\u00a0nursing school\u00a0in Krakow\u00a0\u00a0(1911) \u2013 they were round in shape with a small lint, covered hair,\u00a0\u00a0occasionally (because of going out into the street) a navy blue veil was put on the cap\u00a0\u00a0. Later, round, crinkled caps covering the entire head were introduced, fastened with buttons at the back or sewn into the back patches (Krakow, Warsaw). Then the so-called \u201cbutterfly caps\u201d were introduced around the lap of the whole head (Poznan, Warsaw 1- \u00a0Symbolic\u00a0\u2013 means humbleness and willingness to serve other people,2- \u00a0Functional\u00a0\u2013 as a protective function, securing often long hair. Nowadays, nurses do not wear a hat as a headgear and the signaling \u2013 I am a nurse \u2013 has been disturbed. Patients complain the most, because they are very difficult to distinguish the medical team, they are confused by the fact that they do not know who is who in the ward? It is simply more convenient for nurses to work without this symbolic headgear. For the first time in a nursing career, the cap is put on the head of the nurse during the nursing as a Nurses Logo & RN Logo of belonging to a professional group and the desire to help others in health and illness. In addition, caps are put on in gala costumes during any professional or state ceremonies. In everyday life, there is no cap on the head of the nurse, she replaced the brooch in the shape of a cap, which is usually worn on the right side of the uniform. It should be emphasized that in the 21st century both a cap and a brooch are not obligatory elements of a nurse\u2019s outfit.\u00a0\u201cIn accordance with the aspirations of the nursing environment, expressed the position of the 1st National Congress of Nurses and Midwives of December 12, 1990 on the professional identifiers of nurses and midwives, the necessity to wear a cap as an idea of \u200b\u200bthe profession\u2019s qualification is waived, and imposes an obligation to present an information badge on the content determined by the district decision self-government body.\u201d\u00a0Nurses,\u00a0however, do not give up the cap of\u00a0\u00a0Nurses Logo & RN Logo,\u00a0which is why they ofteninstead of a cap, they attach a metal miniature to the flap of his work clothes. Nursing Uniform. A nursing uniform is an outfit worn by every nurse regardless of age, usually in white. Has a double meaning. Protective as protection against the patient\u2019s impurities, protecting against infection of the skin with bacteria and fungi, and symbolic as a Nurses Logo & RN Logo of cleanliness of the outfit. This uniform is a set of clothing consisting of: \u00a0a cap,\u00a0apron, most often made of gray linen or a white cross apron cotton.\u00a0prophylactic shoes,\u00a0cloth cape. Designs of uniforms, their sewing and cut have changed throughout the history of the profession and fashion trends.\u00a0In the Polish nursing education, the official nursing uniform was adopted as an example \u2013 the outfit of American nurses, which distinguished themselves with their activity especially in the years 1921\u20131928. The beginnings of uniforms are associated with their diverse colors.\u00a0It happened that they were plaid, striped, but buffs (sleeveless aprons) were always white. However, since the first Nursing Act of February 21, 1935 (Journal of Laws 1935 No. 27, item 199, Article 18, item 11), the appearance of the uniform is defined and regulated by Polish law. Also, the modern nursing uniform, which is obligatory during the performance of professional work, is to meet, above all, all sanitary and hygienic standards. The material must be non-flammable, subject to repeated washing, disinfection and sterilization processes, it must not restrict movement. Nurses have a choice as to the cut, it can be both a skirt and trousers, a longer or shorter top, with a zipper, buttons or press studs. The colors mainly remain white, often with colorful trims, however, blue, celadon, pomegranate, pink or salmon are also found, depending on the specifics of the department or the preferences of the staff.\u00a0It is important that all nurses in a given ward look alike.\u00a0Elements of the gala uniform determined by the Polish Nursing Society on November 28.\u00a02009 include: \u201cNurse\u2019s gala uniform 1.

Navy blue cape, longer than the skirt by 2 cm\u00a0White gloves Nursing anthem Nursing anthem was founded in 1935. He wrote and composed it at the request of the PCK Main Board \u2013 Jan Kielarski. It is a 4-stanza song with a marching melody, accompanying nursing students and nurses during professional celebrations.During the Warsaw Uprising (1944), the notes and words of the hymn were lost. In 1948 they were recreated by Danuta Zachaczewska-Sobolewska. The author changed a few words, justifying her changes with the need to reflect the atrocities of war. In 1962, further changes in words were made by Ma\u0142gorzata Okr\u0105glak \u2013 Lisowska, at the request and with the protection of the Polish SocietyNursing (PTP). The final approval of the words and melody (which was changed and composed by A. Chamerski) of the nursing hymn took place in 1972, so that its overtones were received uniformly by society. Olive lamp \u201cNightingale lamp The concept of the \u201coil lamp\u201d goes back to the history of the Crimean War, during which the mother of modern nursing Florence Nightingale visited wounded soldiers at night, shining the title lamp. Nightingale brought light, peace, encouragement to the wounded, and above all, nursing support and care, and thanks to enabling work after dark, the oil lamp became a Nurses Logo & RN Logo of light and mental enlightenment, knowledge, intelligence, cognition, reason. The Nightingale lamp also symbolizes a source of kindness and warmth, as well as reliability and readiness for action regardless of the time of day or night. Directly refers to the character of Florence Nightingale \u2013 the founder of the first nursing school. A stylized copy of the lamp with the light on accompanies significant nursing ceremonies in all countries of the world.
