Lab Coat NP Embroidery

  1. 0 Please post your embroidery on your lab coats as a advanced practice nurse. I want ideas of what would be professional for me, a soon to grad FNP. I'm getting a new lab coat because my current one has my school logo and screen print and also, I want to get the Landau men's lab coat that fits the ipad 2 . I know the embroidery may depend on where you work, but I still want to see what everyone has. thanks!

    1. What's professional?
    2. What's overboad?
    3. Script font and color? Black ideal?
    4. You can take it to a tailor later to change it right?

    I did search around allnurses and found some forums but did not really get a straight answer and only a few examples were found.

    I don't have any input b/c I have no intention of ever wearing a lab coat again! I'll tell you the truth, I love fashion and I am a very well dressed woman and I'm not spoiling my look with a ridiculous white coat, lol. I always laugh when I read medical student at SDN c/o about nurses thinking we have the right to wear white coats. They can have it, if I weren't forced I wouldn't be caught dead in one.

    However, to your question, if you MUST wear one I suggest getting something decent, and 100% cotton. I got my student lab coat (this one: http://www.medelita.com/lab-coat-34-sophia.html) at medelita. It was almost as hideous as all the others, but at least it wasn't polyester! I got a lot of compliments on it. They do do embroidery as well. I'd just put my name on it, and FNP, etc. Short and sweet.

    congratulations on finishing school!

    Hey thanks for your response. I just hope that coat fits my ipad 2. Sometimes I want to be hands free without putting it down and risk theft. Plus, I just got in the US Air Force a few months ago as an FNP (paper work is complete and need to finish FNP program now ) and I'm not 100% sure if we'll be wearing white coats or not. I did see a few army physicians wearing their lab coats over the BDU. Must be hot though huh?

    I guess I'll stick with

    NurseW74, FNP
    Family Nurse Practitioner

    Or is that too much? How about replacing the "FNP" with "MSN" after my name?

    Btw...I looked at that site. I need something from the Mens department please.

    I work in several dialysis units where bleach and blood are always therereadyto land on me! I wear the blue pinstriped knee length lab coat with my practice logo on one side and my name and APN on the other side. IL says you must use APN so I don't have anything else.

    BTW after five years all my pockets are now held together with safety pins. Lol

    In the USAF, you can take off your ABU top if you wear a lab coat. Oh, and as cool as it seems, why deal with owning one? You can sign out a couple and keep on in the hospital laundry so they stay clean. If it gets lost - no biggie since you'd have $0 invested. I had one stolen from the wide open in plain sight in the ER, it had my name, etc on it and someone still walked off with it. I haven't bought one since. I only hope they stole it then tied it around their neck and jumped off of a chair.

    I'm seriously having a hard time picturing a lab coat that will fit an iPad AND still look professional. The best I can come up with visually is a big ole baggy man lab coat that is going to look even more hideous dragged down by an iPad. Please tell me that ain't so! Link ?

    I agree with you on the initials:

    Mary Smith, FNP
    Family Nurse Practitioner

    My patients do not care about all the rest and they have no idea what it means !

    Here you go. http://www.medelita.com/mens-labcoat-laennec.html They also have those ridiculous full length coats. I don't know anything about the military, sorry. Good luck though!

    If you already have the letters FNP after your name, why add the full words "Family Nurse Practitioner" below it?

    To me it reads like:
    John Doe, MD
    Doctor of Medicine

    Good thinking. How about this? I'm just worried like if I get placed in a different unit such as urgent care or emergency room and it saying "Family Practice" may be weird. So maybe the second one below may fit better? O should I not worry since I can take it to the tailor and get it changed for less than $5? I heard military tailors are very cheap compared to the civilian world.

    Well, I've always let my place of employment dictate the format of my lab coat and in 2 out of 3 places I've worked for, the lab coats were ordered by my employer for me. I always have my name embroidered as:
    First Last, NP
    Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

    and later:
    First Last, NP
    Critical Care

    Some lab coat retailers can remove a previously embroidered name or title on a coat.

    I'm a PMHNP and wear street clothes (another reason to be a PMHNP ). No way in hell I'm putting anything on my expensive Hawaiian shirts, ha, ha!

    If you have basic sewing skills you can easily make an ipad holster with belt fasteners. I put a 12 ga wire in the opening seam so it always stays open and its easy to put back and retrieve.
