When I returned to University to finish school (1973) skirts were up to yonder, no slips heck no bra required. Only had to buy one wash and wear uniform, instead of the 6 starch and iron ones from before... and the director actually said... if you want a cap go to XXXX uniform shop and pick out one you like. No school cap, no ribbon, just pick. So I got a catalog from Kay's Caps and picked one I liked (more to choose from). I put it in a display case with my pin, my original license and the ticket for my family to see me graduate in a sea of black gowns and mortarboards. No white dress,no cap.

I want to implement the use of a tactical vest for male RNs. I think it looks much more professional and utilitarian.
