I am not in nursing school but I am planning on starting in 2011. I am finishing up my prerequisites. My question is what is the universal standard on wearing jewelry with your scrub uniform? I am thinking that bracelets and rings are not permitted, but what about earring studs for females and short necklaces?

- Sep 19, '10 by Chris NSmaybe a watch of some sort
- Sep 19, '10 by traumaRUsIn my current position, I wear a watch, a wedding band and an anniversary band plus two bracelets that are soldered on my left wrist.

However, it gets pretty irritating when you see the nurses wearing their earrings and necklaces! I just keep telling myself that they once went through it, too. (Most of the nurses in our area attended the same school I'm attending.)
- Sep 26, '10 by SingDanceRunLifeAt my school, a watch is required, and we can also wear one pair of earrings (technically, in reality, people wear a lot more than that), and a simple necklace.

- Oct 2, '10 by SeebachRNAt my company we allow our floor staff to wear a simple ring (no raised stones), watch of course, and necklaces as long as they dont fall more then two inches from the neck when bending over a patient. As for earrings most all are fine, as long as they are not getting in the way of your work.
I have seen a woman who had a simple maybe 1" hoop earring ripped out of her ear as she was helping a patient from the wheelchair to their bed. It was not a pretty sight, and didn't look good after it was done.
