What are the general rules and regulations? I know i can make all my piercings go invisible but can i still do either of them with stretched ear lobes?

Perhaps you should check with potential employers?

Jewelry:

Jewelry must be kept to a minimum. Wearing earrings poses a danger to the students, again because they can be grabbed, therefore earrings should not be worn. No EMT collar brass may be worn. During clinical rotations, students will only be allowed to wear a wedding band; other rings are discouraged for their safety and protection. Any neck chains must be worn under a shirt.

a couple of the nurses that work with my wife have nostril piercings, and one has her eyebrow done.  i think it varies with each employer, though.

yeah i've seen nose piercings on nurses, but even few nurses i've noticed have their ears done.
my best friend in australia is doing her clinicals and wears a stud in her lip, though.
if you're allowed to wear anything in your ears i guess you may just want to think about the people you'll be working with first. perhaps working in aged care you would have less of a problem? but kids love to pull at any visable piercing!! i've had one standard ear piercing pulled out and my nose stud twice, plus plenty of other close calls!

I've seen nurses lobes stretched up to around a 0-00g.

When I was working as a phlebotomist, they really didn't care about visible piercings, but were a little tentative around visible tattoos. That always seemed weird to me.
And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit.

well i'm guessing you may have to ask your employers.
i've found that if your employer likes you, they're usually willing to bend the rules as long as you don't make them regret it.
well my brother certainly isn't a nurse- but his lobes are rather large, and his employers usually make him wear plugs even though theres no piercings rules simply because they think his lobes look gross without the plugs!
my advice though would be to make them as invisible as possible until somebody says something.
if you take the risk of someone ripping them out then thats your risk to take- back in school they made my mum sign a wavr that we wouldn't sue anyone if my nose ring got ripped out on school property..

i'll ask the wife when she gets home if anyone there has stretched lobes.  i don't see how they let facial piercings slide but they'd have a problem with lobes.
