    Jeans and a t-shirt, or whatever you would normally wear on a day off at home. You're not expected to wear business casual or anything like that, if that's what you're wondering.

    Eventually you will wear shorts and a t shirt or sweats/ yoga pants. I second don't forget socks if it is flip flop season.

    This is a real question? Wear whatever floats your boat. Personally I'd avoid stockings and high heels, but that's just me.

    I'd go with a tuxedo with one of those spraying carnations in the lapel.

    I've def had to rock the hospital grippy bright yellow "fall precaution" socks for a shift or two...

    Now be nice..... this is a new position and they just want to be sure they don't make a bad impression.

    OP.....You can wear whatever is "decent" in public...there isn't a "dress code" casual. Wear underwear and socks or whatever you normally wear under scrubs.

    Don't forget to bring your work shoes!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good Luck!!!!

    most of the nurses that wear hospital scrubs just wear in whatever - most kept socks/shoes in their lockers and wore flip flops or slip ons (even in cold weather)

    Thank you for all the advice! It eased my anxiety about my decision of jeans and a t shirt. First day jitters done!
