Does anyone like their uniform? I find my uniform top to be one of the most uncomfortable and unflattering things ever made. Seriously I look like a love seat in the thing.... Read More

    Uniforms for lab/clinical days. Work "casual" (and not very casual - lots of things on the "do not wear" list) with white knee length lab coat for lecture days.

    Ours are all white, not flattering at all.

    Interesting that you wear knee length lab coats. Ours are to be hip length and no longer. I've heard stories of docs getting crabby about non-docs in long lab coats!

    I thought it was a little strange too. But we won't be seeing any non-nursing docs where we have our lectures, so I guess they figure we won't upset anyone.

    I find the lab coat requirement odd for a different reason. I come from a lab environment where you were not to wear your coat outside of the lab -- hallway to grab something from a -80C freezer was OK, but never to a conference room, lecture hall, cafeteria, etc.

    Never thought of that, makes sense though! You don't want to go picking up all kinds of other stuff on your coat and bringing it back into the lab. I'm guessing the lab coats are more about putting forth a professional appearance than about function.

    Our scrubs aren't bad. Hunter green top and bottom. I'm grateful for no white since i'm rather clutzy. The only bad part about our uniform is the "lab coat" which looks like a sport warm up jacket, with no collar and snaps up the front. Unfortunately, because a hospital we do clinicals at has decided no one other than doctors can wear any type of white coat, the "lab coat" is also hunter green, which makes look weirder than a white jacket with no collar and snaps. But the scrubs are fine at least.

    In the lab, it was more so that we wouldn't be dragging lab "stuff" (infectious agents, chemicals, etc.) out to the general public areas, though in some applications, it was also so that we weren't introducing "stuff" to our labwork.

    I agree that it's likely that lab coats worn to lecture are more for appearance than function in this case. Regardless, I'm happy to have a seat!

    I start NS in August!

    My school has us wear hunter green scrubs in any brand we choose. They have to be basic vneck tops though (no fashion tops). Also we need a lab coat and both the lab coat and scrub tops need to be emroidered with our name, "student nurse" and our school name and logo. We also have to wear white shoes with no logo.

    We have to wear the scrubs in lecture, in lab and in clinical.

    Y'all are lucky! We have straight white pants, and a white top. But it's not a regular scrub top! It's an old fashioned button down with a collar top. We have a maroon stripe on the collar, and our school patch goes on the left shoulder. Their hideous! Lol.
