Catalog and Student Handbook 2021 - 2022

Professional Grooming and Behavior Standards

Professional standards of grooming and behavior and appropriate dress are expected of all students while attending classes and clinicals. Students are expected to be neat and well-groomed and to act professionally at all times. Meticulous care in personal hygiene is essential in the healthcare field. Students are prohibited from using heavy perfumes/colognes during class and clinicals out of consideration for staff members, students, and patients. Students are required to wear the college uniform for clinical and field experiences. When in uniform, jewelry should not be worn except for a wedding band and stud earrings. Lab coats should be worn during short-term observations in the clinical area or professional labs. The Division of Nursing has additional requirements listed in the Student Handbook for the Associate of Science in Nursing program.
