No more AWFUL uniform!

  1. I dressed my horrid uniform up as a scarecrow last night and then I kicked it really hard. Cathartic, actually.

    I never have to wear that "all white polyester ,see through, stiff ,bend over and the pants fall off ,non breathable, pocketless nightmare of a horrid thing" again! I contemplated burning it but couldn't bring myself to do that. So instead I just kicked it. lol. Now the pants and top are going to Goodwill and the jacket is just being thrown out. Its stained anyway.


    Final is tomorrow! It's been a long 2 years but WOW was it worth it.

    Congratulations and Good Luck!

    This semester I was in Psych (had to wear nice street clothes) and OB (wore the hospital scrubs). It was such a nice change from the stiff white uniform. But I'll be back in them in January.

    Ha! Ha! I still have the embroidered patches we were required to sew onto the arms of our uniforms in my jewelry box. They are 32 years old.

    FYI. . .didn't know if you were aware of this, but some facilities are going back to an all white uniform dress code. Just thought you'd like to know that. I think it has to do with consumer surveys and the identification of just who is and isn't a nurse in the hospital setting these days.

    I can't wait to NOT wear the white pants anymore. We have navy tops luckily. I was going to pass mine down to a 1st year student, it is always nice to have a backup uniform.

    I was thinking that too - unfortunately in my clinical site, the RNs are wearing all-white, lol. Hopefully I'll be able to escape that once I graduate. We (students) wear all-white with those ugly navy blue "aprons". They are horrid, we look like pre-WWII nurses.
