    I have worn scrubs daily until I got this job as an APN. Now...I have to wear business casual and a knee-length lab coat. The lab coat is kinda cool because its got big pockets to put all my reference stuff, PDA, phone, two pagers (I'm super important - lol) and stethoscope.

    However, I go shopping for clothes and I have to look at what is machine wash and easy to care for and looks decent! I would love to be back wearing scrubs.

    I went to nursing school because I wanted a cool stethascope cover and get to wear it around my neck all day/night. AND THEN... I found out that I also get to fill my pockets with all kinds of really cool stuff like little scissors, tape of all kinds, little personal packets of alcohol, 2x2's, pens, LOTS and LOTS of papers to write numbers on, etc... It's cool!

    OH! And I get to meet new people EVERYDAY!
