Scrubs, Anyone?

  1. 0
    Hi all,

    It is seen that there are several styles and colors of scrubs available. For you experienced students and nurses, are there any little features that you like to see in your scrubs? I dunno, say real belt loops instead of a drawstring... or some similar thing.

    I got my acceptance letter late (yesterday) and it does not have any info on this matter as to the style & color my college (HVCC in Troy, NY) prefers. 'guess, I will have to wait until the counseling session that I have to schedule the first thing Monday to learn those particulars.

    Like anything else, I am sure there are differences in quality & desirable/not so desirable feature in scrubs. What are the experienced community thoughts on matters such as scubs? I am sure some annoying feature can lead to a seemingly longer day than it actually was.

    Wear whatever your school requires you to wear. Be happy if it isn't all white like I had to wear back in the day. Once in the real world most of the guys I work with wear aviator scrubs.

    I prefer cargo pants. I need the pockets for my wallet, change, keys, phone, etc. I am male so I don't carry a purse to stash all of my stuff in.

    I really like the scrubs that have a bit of stretch built in. There are some cheap ones from places like Walmart that feel like I'm wearing a paper gown . Then there are some that are made of a stretchy kind of fabric, not sure what, but they are very soft and easy to move in. I always test them out in the fitting room before buying them to see if I can comfortably squat down all the way and can give myself a big bear hug. I go to school in Alberta, and we don't have a specific dress code, we can wear whatever colors we want, but they says it's a good idea to stay away from really crazy bright patterns. Leave those for peds . Hope this helps

    Is that anything like a fanny pack? I could totally pull that off!

    The more pockets the better.

    Dear lord, that's exactly what the profession needs.
    A bunch of nurses running around in fanny packs.

    Just do what I do. Debit card/cash in your bra, lip gloss in one pocket, phone and keys in the other pocket. Simple!
