ASU Dress Code (Provided by ASU)

Arizona State University College of Nursing & Healthcare Innovation (Revised 4/17/12)

Clinical Dress Code
The uniform is a means of identifying nursing students enrolled in the traditional or post-baccalaureate clinical nursing programs. In all clinical settings, it is important for CONHI students to be clearly identifiable as ASU students for their own protection.

Students should take pride in their professional appearance as they represent ASU. As a healthcare provider, students are expected to demonstrate conservative, safe and professional dress and grooming.

This dress code is to be observed by all traditional and post-baccalaureate nursing students. Faculty will review the dress code with students at the beginning of each clinical rotation.  Faculty will provide students with specific instructions where exceptions to the dress code can be made.   

Traditional and Post-Baccalaureate Clinical Nursing Students will comply with the dress code at all times while in a clinical agency.  Course faculty may require students to wear their uniform to laboratory or simulation experiences.  Noncompliance with this dress code will be reflected in the clinical evaluation and may result in dismissal from clinical experiences.  Traditional and Post-Baccalaureate Clinical Nursing Students are also expected to comply with clinical agency dress code requirements. 


Students hair must be clean, neat and kept away from the face. If the student’s hair is long, it must be securely fastened back from the face so that long ends remain behind the shoulders. Students may use plain barrettes and plain, non-decorative ponytail holders to secure hair away from the face and behind the shoulders.  . Male students may wear neatly trimmed beards and/or  mustaches.

Students must keep nails short and trimmed. Students may wear clear, colorless, non-chipped nail polish.  Due to health & safety requirements, sculptured or artificial nails are not acceptable.

Due to health & safety requirements, ear loops, dangling pierced earrings, or other visible piercings are not permitted.

Students may wear subtle makeup.  Students are not allowed to wear perfume, after-shave, or fragrant lotions or powders. .
