    in my experience, the pants wear out before the tops. if you have solid colors, forget about trying to match a new solid color pair of pants to the old solid color top. with print tops, when the pants wear out you just get another pair of pants that picks up one of the colors in the top. i have one solid top, and the pants are just about to go . . . .

    the only time i have ever wore white scrubs was during florence nightingale week. and during my clinical, since i didn't like the all white i decided to wear "hot red underwear" which drove my nursing teacher crazy...
    some old schooler on the board at this rural critical access county hospital felt, . .

    "it gives the patients a sense of comfort to see nurses in white uniforms, and white shoes."

    i'm not a "white scrub kind of guy either," give me olive green, or royal blue. i even wore lime green because they dared me. but, sadly, expression is frowned on at this facility.

    do you know how hard it is to find a pair of solid white shoes in this area????!!!!!!

    . . . oh, and kudos on the hot red undies!!!!!!!

    Hi Pinkmegan,

    Just out of curiosity what do nurses wear over there?

    I prefer scrubs with designs because my patients seem to enjoy them as conversation starters. I havent worn plain white since nursing school.

    It varies but scrubs are only worn in theatre and recovery. When I started nursing women had to wear dresses! Urrgh!!
    We now wear tunics & trousers, the colour of the top denoting your status. Although this varies from unit to unit.

    I never wear solid tops. All prints, some subdued, some a little wild, some cartoons. Just one more thing to love about school nursing. I can also wear business casual when I feel like it, so sometimes I wear khakis and a polo top. Fridays are jeans with the school t-shirt.

    Try posting the website for the custom scrubs. If not allowed, could you send it to me privately??

    I love a certain Grey's Anatomy top (the one with the diagonal slash). Every time I wear it people ask me at work if I have lost weight... So therefore, I have the same style in 5 different colors!

    One of the perks of doing Peds is the scrubs! My all time favorite is my Tinkerbell top, but I do get many compliments on the Hello Kitty, Blues Clues, Thumper, and Aristocats tops as well.

    The kids definitely do notice when you wear one of their favorite characters n they are more than happy to point it out to you. It makes getting ready for work fun

    I wear solid color scrubs but I usually go with different colors for the top and bottom. I am not a fan of all one color. I have one top with butterflies which I always get compliments on, probably because no one on my unit wears prints.

    Can you then wear what you like colour wise?! If so do you have to buy your own?

    I hate buying new black scrubs and realizing how grey the old ones have become.

    I'm all about solids, I'll miss match top and bottoms like black and red, light blue dark blue but absolutely hate prints and will never be caught dead in them. On first day for my students I let them know if I ever see them in a print or pattern I have liberty to make fun of them forever and if they ever wear characters, we're a primary care office, I'll send them home. Characters are fine in Peds and my kiddo loves it at his peds office but I don't think my over 30y.o patients will appreciate a student wearing Betty Boop and drawing their blood! It's already enough that they look like they're still in high school. Also hate frumpy scrub wearers! :/. When it's two sizes to big or even worse two sizes to small and I can see your socks. I have to admit scrub shopping is difficult especially if your pear shaped like me (xs top, med bottoms), so try them before you by them peeps!
