Dress Code

As professionals, students are expected to follow dress code any time they are in class or in the Radiology Department. All students wear designated white uniform tops, navy blue pants, white professional shoes, and white hose/socks. A thorough explanation of rules for uniforms and grooming are addressed at the information session and is explained in depth in the student handbook.

Students are to be neat and well groomed at all times. This includes proper personal hygiene and daily change of uniform. Uniforms are to be clean and pressed.  Hair must be styled in a professional manner that is away from the face and above the shoulders at all times when in uniform.  Long, unsecured hair is a safety hazard. For the protection of the student technologist and the patient, long hair must be styled in a manner that cannot sweep across a sterile field or patient. Conservative hair accessories may be worn to secure hair. These include small, neutral colored ribbons or bows and exclude large, bright colored ribbons or fashion bows. If a beard or moustache is worn, it must be neatly groomed.

Jewelry should be modest, safe, and practical.  A watch and one ring or ring set per hand may be worn.  If a necklace is worn it must be secured inside the uniform at all times. Earrings are limited to a small post styles only. No large loops are permitted due to personal safety. Other visible body piercing jewelry is not permitted. Nails must be kept short and clean according the medical center's nail policy (1/4 inch or shorter length).  Acrylic nails and nail enhancements are prohibited for patient care givers. Any tattoos deemed offensive must be covered. Wearing perfume or lotion with strong fragrances is restricted in the clinical area due to the fact many patients cannot cope with certain odors.
