clinical uniforms - page 4
Hello everyone... I did check the archives for this but I was pretty frustrated when I found out today that the uniform requirement for clinicals is white skirt (I think white pants are okay too),... Read More
0Dec 12, '02 by HooliganI guess I'm a little different...I hapen to think the hat is nice! But only with all whites...I can't really picture it with colored scrubs...unless they made colored hats...hmmm... I really do think something has to be done though because everyone does look the same and it's hard to distinguish who is who in the hospitals. I'm not sure if we have a pinning ceremony or if we get our pictures with the hats but I know I'll be disappointed if we don't. I like traditions and I believe they have a place in Nursing. Anyway...I'm rambling now!
0Dec 12, '02 by nurseleighWe don't wear hats either, but I do agree that they definitely make it where you wouldn't get mistaken for the housekeeper, laboratory, respiratory therapy, secretary, and CNA's. Everyone wears scrubs!!!
There are a few nurses in our local hospital that still wear a cap and they seem to get more respect from the patients and their families. Or maybe it just seems that way to me.
0Dec 13, '02 by SpecFuzI just received my requirements for a uniform and they are:
white leather shoes with laces (no clogs or sandals),
white uniform, tunic style top that goes over pants (they said white scrubs are okay) but requested white undergarments be worn AND clarified...(are you ready for this?) no thongs.
After the chuckle, I began my search for the most comfortable pair of white leather shoes with laces that I can find. I mean, do white leather sneakers qualify if they are all white?
If anyone has any great websites or suggests a certain brand or type of shoe, I would be greatly appreciative! I need a big supportive shoe (leather keds will not work for me).
Thanks and good luck to everyone!
BTW, they also said I'll need a stethescope. Understandable, but how would I have any idea what kind or type to buy? I'm a clueless nursing student that hasn't even started!
