Students very directly impact the reputation of the College of
Nursing by their manner of dress and personal grooming during clinical
experiences. The dress code is clearly stated and designed to project a
professional image and ensure the safety of both students and those for
whom they care. Faculty are the ultimate judge of the students'
compliance with the college's standards and are authorized to dismiss
students from the clinical areas until their dress conforms to the
code. Repeated violations should be reported to the associate dean of
student affairs and may result in termination of the clinical rotation.
In some instances, agency policies may impose additional restrictions
that must be honored.
