1. Hi everyone, just wanted to introduce myself. I'm new here and very serious and excited about getting my PN diploma and like the idea of being in the company of other student nurses and already-nurses. Just had orientation today. We have to wear caps in clinicals. How many of yall do? Hope to hear from yall.

    Hello! Good luck with your program. I start Aug. 22nd but we don't have to wear caps. They look nice but are so impractical. Lots to be learned and shared on this board.

    Thanks for such a warm welcome, yall! And yes, my name does come from the fact that I LOVE DOGS! It did kind of take me off guard when the program director told us that. I thought the days of caps were over! However, she said we had to because "we look so much more professional." LOL. Anyway, hope to get to know yall!

    There is one nurse I worked with who wears her cap and white uniform dress. She looks sharp! Not saying I would wear the cap but ya never know.
