A Lab coat is not required, but is optional. Shoes are to be sturdy, non-skid, and closed toe. If you are employed by the same agency that you use for clinical, you may not wear your work scrubs at the time you are in clinical as a RN-BSN student. The RN BYU-Idaho badge must be worn in the community when completing assignments for the course that are theory, project or clinically related. The RN to BSN ID badge is to be worn for all class related activities. The new ID badge is grey and white.  (If you have a blue RN to BSN ID badge, it does not need to be replaced.)
