tucking scrub pants in shoes

  1. 0 sup dudes n dudettes,

    the nursing school struggle is real. so much reading to do, but i'm trying to stay positive n picture what it'll be like to finally be an rn.

    anyway, got a practical coming up soon n i'm planning on tucking my scrub pants into my shoes. i'm prob gonna do it regardless of what y'all say (lol), but i'm curious as to what your opinions are on the subject.

    study hard. peace.

    Uh? Tucking pants inside shoes? What is the purpose of that?

    Just curious.

    well the shoes that i got are hi-tops, so the natural thing for me to do would be to tuck them scrubs in. simply put, i guess it's just a form of self stylespression.

    You could get the old type scrubs we used to wear with the stretchy like cuff things (I'm awful at explaining things) at the bottom of the leg. They could easily be stuffed into the shoes and wouldn't look so weird, lol.

    Just be prepared for your clinical instructor to tell you to untuck them. Regardless of your personal style, you have to dress appropriately, in accordance with the dress code. I'm not saying it's definitely going to happen, but it is certainly likely.

    agree with Sporanokids --- would never fly at my school.

    My school wouldn't even allow hi tops. So I guess a school that allows hi tops might be okay with tucking them in. If you don't know that they definitely allow hi tops, I would leave them untucked

    hmm. thanks for the input, ppl. well if they tell me to untuck them there's not much i can do about it. hopefully the real world work environment is more lenient..

    Don't count on more relaxed dress codes in the 'real world'. Hospitals are very focused on customer service, and patients/families have a pretty specific idea of how they want nurses to look - LOL. Anything out of the ordinary will probably not be allowed because of the potentially negative impact on customer satisfaction.

    Health care is not the ideal working environment for anyone who feels the need to express their individuality by way of their wardrobe or appearance . . . just sayin'

    Work or school , you will likely get told to untuck.
