  • ALL undergarments that can be seen, like long johns, turtlenecks, etc., that are worn for warmth or to cover tattoos, must be *white*.
  • Any scrub jackets worn over the scrub top must *exactly* match the color of your scrub top, and the jacket must be an actual scrub jacket - NOT a sweatshirt or other type of jacket. ID Badge must be on both the scrub jacket AND the scrub shirt.
  • Black shoes with a solid, closed toe and a closed back. No mesh tops. (No specific style is required.)

                    ~You must wear the scrub top described on the "Uniform/Dress Code" webpage. (It is not necessary to wear the scrub bottom on picture day because you are only getting a head shot taken.)

                    ~You must have your hair pulled back - otherwise your picture will not be taken. 
                    ~If you normally wear glasses, please wear them for your picture.
