In addition to the WGU student ID card, students must order a nursing student ID (see the post admission requirements you receive by mail from the Clinical Operations Coordinator).
Nursing students must also upload a photo of themselves into the online portfolio system (Pass-Port) to ensure proper identification by their clinical coach. Students are not allowed to participate in clinical intensives if their photo was not uploaded in advance making it available to their coach for purposes of identification. This photo must be on a plain, white background and in full-face view directly facing the camera.
Students must wear their nursing student ID at all times in lab, simulation, and clinical agencies. This ID should be worn in an upright position to ensure readability and attached to the nametag slot on the uniform or lab coat. No pins, stickers, or other decoration may be worn on the ID.
The WGU nursing patch should be attached to the upper-left arm of the top of the uniform. If a white coat is worn over the scrub top or shirt, a patch should be on each item of clothing.
Some specialty or community-based clinical sites may require alternative dress codes. Those exceptions will be communicated in writing to students prior to the start of that clinical intensive.
