  1. Can circulating nurses wear make up? What about regular glasses? Wedding ring? stud earrings?

    Best bet is to refer to your facilty's policy for surgical attire. Regular glasses can be worn but do not fulfill the requirements for eye protection when it is needed. Mine allows only plain wedding bands- no stones or engraving (and absolutely nothing when scrubbed). Post earrings that don't dangle are permitted but the hat must cover them. Your facility may have different rules in place.

    These are the rules at my facility too. As for make up, it doesn't really matter. I spend the majority of my day with a mask on so I wear very little make up. My eyelashes are blonde so if I don't wear at least a little mascara, I look like I don't have any
