- May 27, '10 by SeattleKid09I'm lazy and so bought all black pants. That way, any patterned top I grab at 4:30am as I'm half awake heading out the door will surely match.
- Jul 12, '10 by D_a_n_a_hSome nurses get away with wearing fuschia/dark pink, but all the RNs in my hospital are required to wear solid white, wine/maroon/burgundy, or a combo of both.
- Aug 22, '12 by veroniicaxoxoI work at two different hospitals as of today. As an aide and a PCT. The one hospital I have to wear all hunter green. The aides wear hunter green and the RNs wear burgundy or white or a mixture of the two. For the PCT job I'm going to have to wear white pants and a teal top.
- Aug 22, '12 by serenidad2004When i was in LTC/skilled nurses could wear any color top but white bottoms.... cnas could wear anything but white bottoms.... now in dialysis ive had to buy colored bottoms because it can be a well bloody job and darker bottoms dont show it quite as much
- Aug 23, '12 by LeggyNurseI work on Women's Surgery floor which is part of mother/baby. This whole floor wears Squad blue/turquoise and can mix and match white and aqua. The other floors wear a royal blue.
- Aug 25, '12 by liveyourlife747All RNs on the floors hospital wide wear Caribbean blue. Each position has a specific color. Specialty units like l&d, er, and pacu wear hospital issued navy scrubs. I think the uniformity of the hospital is nice!

- Aug 30, '12 by tokmomWe are the only dept that is not colored coded. I have no idea why. We are also the only med/surg floor in a organization of 5 hospitals that isn't color coded. Everywhere else it's navy blue for RN.
I personally stick to solid colors and a coordinating top underneath. My favorite is a pr of black scrubs with a hot pink tie dyed looking shirt under. I get a lot of compliments on it.
Like someone else said, I no longer buy cheap scrubs. I love Koi and am a huge fan.
- Sep 7, '12 by nightengalegoddessI find it interesting that in nursing school we were drilled that we are "professionals"....but now we all have to wear dark blue (thus blue-colored workers)....I think we should all go back to white...and for women, dressess and white tights.....and white shoes....then the patients would KNOW when they were dealing with a REAL NURSE.....not a houskeeper, not a tech...etc. I am personally very tired of hearing my patients state "when I talked to the other nurse".....when they really are talking about the unlicensced personel.
