Scrubs to interview?

  1. Ok so I have this new grad interview tomorrow and I was told to wear scrubs to shadow a RN afterwards. But I feel uncomfortable with the idea of wearing scubs to the interview, it seems unprofessional to me. But then, if we are all trying to mov things along, do I really want to hold things up by having to change? I was going to buy a new set of scrubs that are a little more professional looking,... Then maybe wear a nice sweater over my top...

    What do you think?

    Since they told you to wear scrubs, I would. I do, however, like your idea of wearing some nice new ones

    Call and ask, like you said you dont want to hold them up by changing if they want you in scrubs and you are in slacks and a top...I agree, i would feel weird too, but I would call and ask. Good luck! let us know how it goes!

    new,solid colored scrubs....in a color that you have a blazer/suit jacket that would coordinate with if possible.......if the hosp has a dress code ie a part. color, if you could get that and do the above so much the better

    Since you were instructed to wear them I don't see an issue.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I got some nice new "perfect pant" dickies scrub bottoms and a dark purple top. I'll let you know how it goes... I am SO nervous!

    I'd advise getting a shiny white brand new lab coat and have sparkling white shoes.

    I don't think they care what you wear anymore. Theres such a shortage. If you have a license and a pulse the job is yours.
