    I am in my mid 40s and making a career change into nursing, so I have been around the block a few times (including prior military). I would agree with most of the posts here that advise to just follow the rules of the organization (school or workplace). Most places don't have outlandish standards and they are designed to present a professional image. In the big picture of things, haircut regulations seem kind of trivial to get all worked up over. Just an opinion, that's all.


    I agree in that usually you know the rules going in so if your hair or beard means that much to you you can always turn down the job offer. That said, the county where the hospital I work for is located recently had a birthday celebration. The usual stuff went on including all the men in town growing beards. Our board, in its infinite wisdom, decreed that the prohibition on beards on ther male staff would be suspended for the six months or so of the celebration. The kicker was that this only applied to those who actually live in the county. Those few of us who didn't still had to be clean shaven. I have also always found it funny that a couple of members of the board, including one of my relatives, have beards and hair that would make ZZ Top jealous. Oh well, the folks who make the rules.........

    I gave up on looking like a hippie within regulations.

    Nobody gave me a hard time when I had long hair and a beard. I can't say it caused any problems.

    The day after I cut it all off, women kept telling me how much better I looked. And folks did treat me better.

    A professor once told me, that in any profession, your appearance should show that you take your occupation very seriously. I believe the impression you make affects how much people are going to help you get settled in as a nurse.

    My school WVU-P requires hair above the collar. I just cut off a 7 y.o. ponytail to get in.
    Also not to be a wiseass but America is not a Democratic Nation, She is a Federalist Government I beleive.

    Actually, She is a Republic - "and to the Republic, for which it stands".

    The cut means nothing. Presentable is for the job, right now if you have time and money to go to super cuts every week than you either not studying enough or doing a full load.

    I just buzz everything myself every 3-4 weeks. I'd say it's about a 0-1 all around. Simple, cheap, and clean.

    You can't go wrong with a number 2 clipper or smaller. I go with a 1.5 up the sides and a scissored top for blended shortness. This has been my cut for the last decade or longer.
