OHHH I feel silly asking this!

  1. Sooo I was talking to my friend back in Oregon(she is a LPN) and we started talking about what type of scrubs nurses wear. She was telling me she wears a lab coat.

    What do you wear & hae seen others LPN's wear

    Yhea I know this sounds silly but I am some what addicted to fashion so I am always intersted in what people are wearing....even if they are scrubs


    Little side note.....I order boot cut srucb pants heheehhe I found out where my school ordered there srcubs from:wink2:

    Don't feel silly,if you don't know the answer you should always ask. I am not a nurse yet,I'm not even a student,but my bf's mom is an LPN in an LTC facility and she wears what I like to call 'fun scrubs'-a shirt with prints on it and a coordinating pant. She has flowers,stars,all kind of things. Yesterday she wore a white shirt with frog princesses on it and purple pants. I guess it all depends on the person and the place where they work. In my experience the only ones who wear lab coats are NPs

    i like lab coats because they are easy to put on depending on the temp

    the hospital where my dd works has a different color for each floor
    some facilities have a different color for the job you have, ward clerk, cna
    nurse, respiratory etc
    some don't have a requirement but they usually want a uniform/scrubs

    At the facility where I work, all Licensed Nurses has to wear ONLY plain colored scrubs. To differ from the aides and other non-licensed personnel. I love the "dickies" and "urbane" scrubs. They're my fav. They have many cute plain colored dickies scrubs in different fun styles. My fav. are the pin-striped scrubs. Very nursey nursey pimperish hahahaha.

    I work at a nursing home and wear regular scrubs. Sometimes the tops are printed with crazy designs such as teddy bears, animals, flowers, sea shells, hearts, and other stuff. Sometimes I wear plain, solid-colored scrub tops. All of my scrub bottoms are solid-colors such as black, maroon, light blue, royal blue, khaki, and olive green.

    I WISH that I can wear the wonderful designs that are fashionable, but my hospital recently went traditional and stated that nurses may wear pastel colored tops and must wear white pants. The CNAs, on the other hand, get to wear all of the things that I used to love. It really depends on where you are employeed. There are some places that are so strict that you have to have uniform pants and nursing shoes; IOW, no white jeans and sweats, no sneakers (even nursing sneakers) and no clogs.

    Just to let you know, I am 100% envious of you! I have to wear a pastel colored shirt/lab coat and white pants...no prints of any kind. I really miss my khaki. I can wear a khaki top and jacket, but no khaki pants. Almost makes me want to quit...:trout:

    I'm very particular about my scrubs as the softer the material the happier I am. I'm a big fan of Cottonality scrubs and I love my denim scrubs. Those are the brands I buy mostly and I can wear any color I WANT WHERE i WORK. Though our chief nurse feels only REAL NURSES wear white.

    I'm still a student but I graduate in December! (YIKES) But for clinicals we wear white uniform tops, navy scrub top and a lab coat. In the hospitals around here, they are pretty formal, all whites, not fun tops or anything. But the Aides can wear whatever they want I guess.
