    These uniforms are for the school admin/instructors to make sure that you will remain a single woman/man throughout Nursing School and that you will be 100% dedicated to your studies....no man/woman is going to approach you wearing that!!!! Or if you have a significant other, that they will have no attraction to you WHATSOEVER!!! These uniforms ensure that!!!

    That - or these uniforms make the nurses at the clinical sites take pity on the students wearing them - I know I would!

    Do the men have to wear something like this too?

    [font="comic sans ms"]yes, it's the same print, but it's got a big ol' 70's collar and zips down the middle. it's kind of like the barber meets the ice cream man.

    You know honestly - from the school's standpoint - you would think they would go the scrub route like all the other schools are doing. The old style uniforms appear so dated - and that is one thing a nursing school cannot afford! It sets the image that the school is "old" and doesn't bother to keep up with the times. It wouldnt matter if it was the most state of the art school on the planet - if their students have to wear unis like that! Wether its true or not does not matter - its the image that is put forth.

    TWU used to do all white uniforms - and they did the older styles at the time. A couple of years ago, they went to maroon scrub pants with a white scrub top with the TWU patch on the shoulder. They look very very nice and up to date, and they are appropriate for both men and women. Women have the option of wearing a skirt if they like I believe.

    The additional benefit is the scrub style uniforms are pretty affordable. The drawback is that if they are too big or don't have some fitting they can appear sloppy.

    Maybe your school would be willing to go to ciel blue pants and a white top or something in lieu of the blue pinfeather stripes.

Does anyone know of anyplace I can buy white nursing uniforms online? I am not skinny and white is not exactly flattering when you have padding. :chuckle
    Any advice on websites or flattering uniforms would be appreciated. I want to look professional.
    Don't you just LOVE padding??!!! My program's uniform is not all white, but my pants are and THAT'S my biggest problem area! I found that Uniform City and Wal-Mart were actually helpful. Good luck!

    i'm happy to read that they are others out there who have to wear those ugly white uniforms!

    and we're not allowed to wear scrubs either, it has be a student uniform top.
    here's what most of us wear:

    and of course we have the patch of our school on the left sleeve.
    sonja, for some reason your tunic top reminds me of the see's candies uniforms!! all you need is a little black cardigan! :chuckle

    I was extremely upset when I found out that our clinical unis would be white, but in spite of that I've grown to appreciate them. It's weird, a couple of great compliments about how professional you look can really change an attitude (at least for as long as you are on the floor!).

    We have white tops, with the CC badge/crest/logo embroidered on it, which are available only in one place in town...a little bit of a monopoly if you ask me. But they are Barco and not bad at all, not see-thru, but only 1 pocket. Luckily we get to wear teal blue pants, of any style we want. I get the drawstring ones so that my patient don't confuse me with a plumber (a little bit of a vertical smile issue).

    And after seeing those unis above, makes me very glad of what we have. It could be much worse!

    Cheers,
    Tom
