To purchase the required uniform, please call or go to Santa Rosa Uniform on College Ave in Santa Rosa and tell them you are with the SRJC MA program, and need to purchase your uniform/scrubs. 

Students will not be admitted to skills lab, or externship and out-rotations if they are not wearing the proper uniform/scrubs.

It is highly recommended that the student purchase at *least* 2 full sets of scrubs (2 scrub tops and 2 scrub bottoms). The uniforms are worn several times per week in both the skills labs, and to the externship and outrotations. 


  • Scrubs must be one of the styles approved and available at Santa Rosa Uniform for the SRJC MA program. Scrubs must be matching navy-blue color on top and bottom.
  • 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.)
  • Black socks (clean every day).


  • The official student photo identification (ID) badge/tag is to be worn at all times in all skills lab and externship settings. To obtain your badges, follow the directions here:
    • Contact the SRJC Cashier/Accounting office in Bailey Hall. Tell them you need to pay for 2 ID badges** for health sciences. The cost is $4 each, total of $8. KEEP YOUR RECEIPT.
      • **If you are taking any other SRJC Health Science program(s), you will need 2 ID badges for *each* program.
  • Get your SRJC ID Badge picture taken. The date/time for this will be provided to you by the MA Coordinator, and will be done during the Summer prior to starting the core MA classes in the Fall. 
  • On the day of your picture taking:
  • If you do not bring your payment receipt from Bailey Hall, your picture will not be taken.
  • You must wear the scrub top described on the "Uniform/Dress Code" webpage.
  • Any visible t-shirts or turtlenecks worn underneath the scrub top must be white.
  • 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. 

Hair: Must be clean, and neatly styled. Long hair must be pulled back so that when the students bends over, no hair falls into the face. This means that long ponytails must be wrapped up into a bun, and any hairs that fall out from the bun on the sides of the head must be pinned back. For short styles, hair must be worn above the collar. No extreme styles or artificial colors, such as pink, blue, green, etc.

Facial Hair: Must be clean and neatly trimmed.

Jewelry: Students may wear two stud earrings (one in each ear only, if desired) and wedding ring, if desired. Dangling or loop style earrings pose a potential hazard and may not be worn in the clinical or lab areas. No other jewelry permitted.

Piercings: Students may not wear any jewelry in any other areas, other than the lower ear lobe. If students have upper ear cartilage piercings, or face/neck piercings, then students may wear clear body piercing retainers in all those pierced areas.

Watch: Students must wear a wristwatch with a clock face that has a sweeping/ticking second hand (white preferred), that does not require manipulation to activate the dial. Watches that only display digital numbers are not allowed. Smartwatches are allowed only if the watch can be set to show a clock face with a sweeping/ticking second hand and that does not time out, does not require the student to touch it to activate it, and does not show incoming notifications while the clock face is active. 

Headgear: Hats, caps, and head scarves are not allowed.

Glasses/Contact lenses: Only prescription glasses and/or readers are allowed, no sunglasses or darkly tinted glasses. Only clear or natural colored contact lenses are allowed, no extreme colors. 

Tattoos: Tattoos that are showing on the neck and arms and wrists must be covered at all times by white undergarments and/or white arm sleeves. Tattoos on the hands and fingers may remain uncovered. 

Make-up: Should be limited to neutral shades. No extreme eye, brow, cheek or lip colors. To ensure effective infection control and patient safety, false eyelashes or similar products may not be worn in skills labs or clinical agencies.

Nails: Must be clean, short and free of polish. No acrylic or gel nails.

Hygiene: Students are expected to be free from body odor, tobacco and scents, i.e. lotion, perfume, aftershave, etc.

Food/Drink: Only bottled water in non-glass containers is allowed in the skills lab. Students are not allowed to bring anything other than bottled water to the patient care areas of the externship sites. (Lunch and snack items may be brought and kept in break room areas.) Absolutely no gum, or hard candies in the skills lab, or at the sites.
