Nursing uniforms for military nursesRegister Today!
- by Enthused RN Dec 30, '12I have a somewhat dumb, logistical question - if you are a military nurse (any branch really) and you are working, say, in med/surg, do you wear scrubs or do you wear the fatigues? I imagine the OR staff for sure would wear scrubs but what about the floor staff?

Medsurge areas- ACU bottoms and ACU scrub top (given through vending machines)
Critical care areas- Blue scrubs that were given through vending machines
Although some nurses prefer to stay in ACUs for their shift in medsurge and I haven’t seen anyone get in trouble for it yet. Personally I would MELT
