    We also have to wear all white. It has to be a uniform (i.e. buttons down the front), not scrubs. We have a school patch that goes on the left sleeve and a name tag with the school name. We also have to wear white or beige underwear and no thongs allowed. Our shoes have to be all white but can be regular nursing shoes or tennis shoes. We have to wear our hair pulled back and no jewelry except a watch and tiny stud earrings. It makes me look like a big marshmallow puff, but once I get to the hospital I am so busy I forget how bad I look!

    Your school uniforms sound a lot nicer than what I will be wearing! Our uniforms are all white pants, shirts, socks & shoes, with a blue smock. (like a school lunch lady :imbar ) Hair also has to be pulled up off the nape, so when in uniform, the nursing student's look like a bunch of cafeteria workers. (not that anything's wrong with being a cafeteria worker ,but I don't want to be mistaken for one..sorry to any one I may have offended by stating my opinion.)

    Since I'm not in the nursing program yet, I will have to wait to find out the underware policy

    Hi there,
    My nursing school allows us to wear colours ... I like to wear scrub dresses because I'm kind of "girly" and I don't have a problem with wearing nylons. Most of my classmates wear matching scrub shirts and pants, but some have complained that one or the other will fade to a lighter shade after several washings so that they don't match each other in the end (especially with dark colours like navy blue). I bought my scrub dresses from a company in Canada, but they also sell to the US. EBay is also a good site for cheap uniforms. Scrub dresses tend to fit quite well as far as online shopping goes. Just thought I'd throw in my two cents.
