Anyone wearing team logo scrubs? - page 2
Scrubs with university and professional sports team logos have come out. They're not cheap, nearly $50 for a set. They vaguely bother me. How would a Yankee logo do in a Boston hospital? (would... Read More
Nov 14, '05Quote from NurseKitty NCI agree!!! Personally, I don't like flashing my globes to pts. I do catch men trying to sneak a peak and it makes me mad! :angryfireI think team logoare no big deal. If it bothers people so much, they don't need to look at them.
What is a bigger deal in most hospitals is these new "junior size" scrub styles popular among the younger nurses ... hip-hugging fitted pants, shorter tighter tops with deeper v-necks ... it seems like every company these days are coming out with these more revealing styles, which in my opinion are totally unprofessional looking to say the least.
We need to look professional to patients so we can get their respect. How would you feel if a nurse walked into your room in neon green low rider pants and a tight, low neck tops that barely cover their belly buttons?? I have noticed this only in the younger nurses. Hey, I'm only 25 but I wouldn't be caught dead in those outfits. I buy for comfort, not how many men I can turn on.
Nov 14, '05I'm not for the shorter tops but I AM for the drawstring wide legged pants. I'm young and tapperd pants went out in the 80's. I wear normal tops so you don't see my "business" but the old pants with the elastic wastebands that start below my boobs are not going to happen.
I want Nascar with a big 38 on them!!!
Nov 14, '05Quote from Someday-C.R.N.A.Well Said!!!Personally, I believe that self expression and fashion sense should be left at the door with your beer cooler and big foam finger.
I can see peds Nurses wearing cartoon scrubs and silly steth covers, but I don't see the need for other Nurses to wear anything but a simple, professional uniform.
I also think that ANY mid-line skin showing is VERY inappropriate. How is this different from a male nurse having some crack showing? Both are wrong, in my opinion.
Don't get me wrong - finding scrubs that fit and feel better for you is great, so long as they still look PROFESSIONAL, and remain within the guidelines of your facility. (And cover you properly)
Some nurses I work with (myself included) wear a white shirt (of t shirt material, but not your everyday white hanes T, with regular drawstring pants- no skin is exposed,and if it is important for someone to notice your figure, than they can do that as well.
I've never had a pair of pants that started at my bra? So maybe they are the wrong size all along.
Yes, your knowledge and how you act should gain more respect than an outfit, but many people are unable to get beyong the outfit- and based on a few I've seen recently- I'm not really surprised.
Nov 14, '05Quote from Someday-C.R.N.A.I agree! The "pajama party" look at work does nothing for our image as professionals.I can see peds Nurses wearing cartoon scrubs and silly steth covers, but I don't see the need for other Nurses to wear anything but a simple, professional uniform.
One Nurse might like flowers or kittens on his/her scrubs, but does that mean that I can have guns on mine??
Nov 14, '05My team scrubs don't have Buckeyes everywhere. They are red and have an OSU emblem on the pocket. The pants have the same emblem near the waist, which you can't even see because my top covers it. I believe they are tasteful, compared to some of the too-wrinkly scrubs I see all too often!
Nov 14, '05Quote from Marie_LPNDitto.Quite honestly, i've seen pajamas that resemble those team logo scrubs.
I don't care for them and feel they have no place in nursing uniforms.
Nor do the teeny bopper fashions. It's simply NOT all about "me". This is a profession.. not a tailgate party, nor a stroll through the mall with our girlfriends, seeing who can look the "hottest".
I've never seen a young attorney show up in court to present her case in some of the threads mentioned above. Same goes for other professional attire. Think about it.
And how many MDs do we see wearing butterflies, carebears, and strawberry shortcake? Unless it's peds, perhaps.
JMO, but that's what this board is all about, right?
Nov 14, '05I mean, i'm not against scrubs, but if the clothes don't resemble scrubs all that much.....
Nov 14, '05Quote from Marie_LPNAgree... much of what they're coming out with now are more and more just plain regular clothes.I mean, i'm not against scrubs, but if the clothes don't resemble scrubs all that much.....
But again.. to each his own. Just not what I personaly deem "professional wear".
And I DO believe it affects those around us.. how they perceive us.. and respect us.
Ever hear the saying "the clothes make the man"? There's much truth to that.
Nov 14, '05I have to agree about some of the ridiculous prints I see at work. I mean really. Some of them are truly hideous. I prefer plain colored scrubs with maybe a contrasting colored piping or neckline, etc. I wouldn't be caught dead in some of the prints I see people wearing. As for the flare/wide leg pants...love them! I think it's perfectly acceptable to wear the more modern styles in scrubs as long as you're not flashing your patients every time you bend over.
To the OP, I don't see anything wrong with sports logos if that's your thing but, it probably shouldn't be head to toe.
Nov 14, '05Quote from Someday-C.R.N.A.this tickled me so much I almost peed my pants. how wittyPersonally, I believe that self expression and fashion sense should be left at the door with your beer cooler and big foam finger.
in response to the OP...at my facility we are colored coded...RNs are ceil blue, LPNs lavender, CNAs green, etc. Helps us be identifiable.
I work in TN and am a huge Ole Miss fan, despite their bad games...I grew up in Oxford. I want a pair of their scrubs sooooooo bad, but I would never be able to wear them except around the house, so *sigh* I must save my money for something more useful
You have a point about rivalry. Believe me, it runs rampant here. And to be honest, i would really hate to argue with an 80 y/o cardiac pt as to why I like my team and he doesnt so it is probably better that they are not allowed
But then again, its no different than me wearing an ole miss t-shirt to walmart amidst all the Mississippi State Fans...most of the time the subject never comes up. Political scrubs and Pharmaceutical scrubs? Now that is a different topic all together that I AM NOT going to get involved in...
Nov 14, '05hey guys
I work in PEDS and have all types of scrub tops, but I don't see the problem with them in adults. I mean I understand why an adult nurse shouldn't wear cookie monster but there are some nice prints out there that adults could wear.
Also I hate the new styles (even though I am a new nurse) lol . I can't find any pants that fit right, either they are too small in the waste and mile long in the leg or they sit too high or to low ugh its a mess. The only pants I can wear are the cheap drawstring from life and size medium. Larges are way to big and mediums are a tad snug lol. Anyone have a problem with pants? lol or have any suggestions besides making my own!
Nov 14, '05Oh i have a problem with pants.
Jeans? Heh. With a (now) 25-26 inch waist, and 40 inch hips, and 34 inch legs, buying jeans is about as fun as watching the paint dry. There are plenty of jeans available if someone's a size 15 and long-legged. But apparently, clothing manufacturers haven't caught on that there are women who need jeans that are size 7 or 8 to come with long-leg length.
And it took a several years after Levis quit making the 900 series jeans, but, finally, The Gap has a style that FITS everywhere, the ones labeled "curvy". Curvy does sound a little better than "butt is 15 inches bigger than waist."
Size "average length" in scrubs means it'll miss my ankle bone by a good 4-5 inches. If i buy "tall" they're JUST long enough, IF i don't wash them in hot water, or dry them in the dryer. And that's all of maybe 2 styles, so that leaves no wide variety. Luckily i don't have to buy scrubs right now, but i have to wear a large at work for the extra leg length.
Which explains why i have a ton of shirts lol.
