    I've always thought scrubs kinda resemble pajamas either way. That's one of the reasons I want to be a nurse (sarcasm).

    I wouldn't, but that's me. I got into nursing because I'm not someone who could do a desk job.

    I have no desire to leave hands-on patient care in the foreseeable future. No way, no how!

    I can't see myself doing that because it would probably involve being on the phone a whole lot. I hate the phone. I can never hear people. I like talking to people face to face.

    I am mostly a stay at home mom. I depend on my bedside hospital job to get out of the house and around other people, so no.

    Not anytime in the forseeable future, no. I enjoy direct patient care.

    I would never want to work at home. I like going into the overstimulating ER where I work, work like a maniac with a smile on my face, then retreat to my home to rejuvenate and re-center.

    I think if I were home all the time I'd turn into a recluse and become even more eccentric than I already am. Going out into the world keeps me grounded and connected.

    I agree with the poster who said scrubs are practically PJs! I love working in my pajamas at the bedside, and plan to stay at the bedside as long as I am able to. In my pajamas.

    Nope. I love bedside nursing. As mentioned above, scrubs pretty much ARE pajamas anyway.
