    Uh...pale pink or beige panties don't show through. Everyone can see the white under white

    OUr LPN uniforms were alright. They were dark green slacks or skirt (for the ladies, I don't think the men had this option!), a white button down shirt and white vests with dark green piping trim across the front and over each pocket.
    Feeling kind of sentimental here (sniff,sniff)...lots of classmates were going to burn theirs....mine goes into a "memory box" for safekeeping until 20 yrs from now, when my daughter wants to go into nursing and asks, "Mom, what did you have to wear?"

    Love, Julie

    Well, I am still in pre-reqs but I see a bunch of folks wearing scrubs around the school. LPNs where dark blue tops and dark blue bottoms, Dental Hygiene students where green, medical assistants where maroon. I am excited to get into LPN......yea.....It doesn't bother me to where the uniforms, it is kind of a "status symbol" at my school.

    Our uniforms are white pants or dress and the smock for the pants have 2 blue 1 inch stripes on the front.(vertical) I feel like a big marshmallow. At least we get to wear blue scrubs for the L&D rotation. :roll

    Darby1 -- what would 'camouflage' for a nurse look like?? I don't know about you, but my mind is full of some amazing visuals! :chuckle Maybe covered with various (body fluid colored) splotches?
    Yeah, that would work! That way you couldn't tell if your uniform was dirty or not. Maybe you could wear it a couple of times before washing it (NOT!). My wife and I were looking at some scrubs tonight at Wal-mart, and they had some really pretty tops, FOR WOMEN! You girls have all kinds of choices in nursing clothes, and the men are basically left out. Oh well, at least my school uniforms are going to be all right. We were able to choose between a Teal colored zippered smok or a knit polo shirt for our tops, and I chose the shirt. The pants and lab coats are pretty much standard issue, and will be white. Now, if I can find me some shoes that aren't ugly I'll be set. You guys have a great weekend.

    Oh yes the dreaded uniforms, I actually just got out of mine (graduated June 30th), and I will be taking great pleasure out of burning them when I go on my long awaited camping trip, (after I have sat my boards- July 23rd). Now I did think about donating them (2 sets of uniforms $200- yes private school expensive uniforms) but then I got to thinking about all the crap that has been on them over the last year, and that idea went out the window.
    The uniforms are horrible something like 75 polyester and the other 25% some other none breathing material, and very fine blue and white pinstrips (yuck) with a white laced apron (I kid you not I DID SAY LACE).....oh the fond memories I will have of those uniforms NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    But I tell myself it was only 1 year of wearing them, and I will never have to wear them again, but I will take great pleasure seeing this year's class on the floor trying to work in them.

    I am due to start school August 19th and do not know anything about uniforms. Still haven't heard anything about an orientation either. I have 4 weeks until I begin. I wonder how long they take before they let you know these things.

    Thanks

    The more I read, the happier I am with my school. All of us will be wearing navy scrubs with a white lab coat for clinicals.

    White blouse, white pants or skirt and white tunic with blue trim around the armholes...or white lab coat with blue collar. All exactly alike, ordered from the same company.
