Are Nurses Allowed To Wear Earrings?

What jewelry a nurse can wear depends on what their hospital will allow.

As a general rule, any kind of jewelry should be avoided because they can be a home for bacteria, but often simple stud earrings are allowed.

Bigger or longer kinds of earrings are usually against policy because they can get caught while you’re working.

Your hospital should have a guide that outlines what’s okay to wear.

Nursing schools tend to have stricter guidelines than hospitals, but make sure to check with your employer.
