Do male nurses wear scrub jackets???

  1. 1 I'm not talking about lab coats. I'm talking about the thin and light scrub jackets that have buttons on them and the tapered, elastic cuffs. Mostly I see only women nurses and lab techs wearing these, what about male nurses when it gets extra cold?

    I've only seen it once and it looked way wrong (IMHO of course) I see a lot of nurses both male and female wearing fleece northface jackets.

    My opinion is completely objective but yes. On the other hand if your comfortable in it and it works who cares what you look like. It's not unprofessional or anything.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news Nolander, but male nurses do not wear scrub jackets when it gets cold. We've got to overcompensate for our choice of career, man up and deal with the pain.

    I am a female who work with male nurses. I've never seen them wear scrub jackets. They do wear long sleeve tshirts. I don't want to comment on the link because I wouldn't be politically correct lol.

    Wear a long sleeve tshirt even I do that.

    Haha, sorry Nolander, I forget my sense of humor is subtle on occasion. I'm about as far from serious as you can get. Simple answer is no, male nurses do not usually wear scrub jackets, we opt for long sleeve t-shirts. But if you feel comfortable putting on a scrub jacket, by all means do so.

    I'm not a nurse but I work as an ER Technician and I have never seen a guy wearing a scrub jacket. When I get cold at work I wear either a hooded sweatshirt or a zip up fleece jacket. I prefer black so I don't have to worry about matching or anything.

    Yep. That's why we have extra body hair...helps keep us warmer. ;-)

    When a previous employer went to uniform scrubs, a scrubs jacket was included. Chose a white one, man's version with the correct sided buttons, but still stuck with my supply of lab coats. Maybe if I didn't have the coats already, I might have worn it.

    I just put on my ACU top if I get cold. Look up some army surplus cold weather gear. One piece called the "waffle" will keep you super toasty and can be worn under scrub tops easily. Comes in tan, and black. You can also steal an OR/clean disposable over-top if your facilities don't look ridiculous.

    I dont do the scrub jackets that are clearly cut for females.
