Black - The New White For Nurses? - page 3

The facility where I work went over to all black scrubs for nurses in March of 2011. We were all shocked! Patients even asked if we were in mourning for the first few months. I had a procedure at... Read More

    For a occupation dominated by women, the idea that white was ever an option for pants is down right silly. No one obviously gave thought to periods when they came up with the white idea.

    I am very sad to see so many hospitals have required scrubs for their nurses. To me this is a huge indicator of a hospitals lack of respect for nurses. Just curious for those of you unlucky enough to work in such a hospital, what are the physicians required to wear?
    Do you mean "required" as in having to wear scrubs or "required" as in having to wear certain colors of scrubs?

    *** I took it for granted that nurses would wear scrubs. That the hospital has so littte reguard for nursing that they would tell each nurse what they must wear, in much the same manner I used to pick out clothes and colors for my 3 year old is indicative of administrations opinion of nurses.
    I hope someone answers my question about what color scrubs the physicians are required to wear at these same hospitals.

    no color looks good on everyone. Royal blue,imo who elses?, looks awful on most people. burgandy is one of the colors that looks ok , at least, on most people. i eould hate having to wear all white as it makes me look awful and many whites are see through in the huge fluorescent hospital lights.

    I like all white. I think that when nurses wore the traditional white uniforms, they looked very professional.

    not sure about scrub requirements but all of the residents of any service that wear scrubs wear a light blue. all of them never saw one in scrubs in a different color.

    Black is slimming so I guess we can all gain another 5lbs without anyone noticing,......."chocolate anyone? "

    I am sure the pts will be disappointed as nothing inspires confidence or screams professionalism than nice neon thongs or flowered undies beneath the paper thin white scubs.

    Ahhhh...the end of an era of the nurse with theflower power!!!

    I had a working interview and the office dress code was black scrub pants and black dress shirt with white labcoat over top, and everyone had their lab coat buttoned to show off their figure.

    I like all colors, even black,
    but, the extremely dark colors,
    and the extremely pale colors,
    both show each every little spot in glaring detail.

    The dark colors show all the powder hand prints each time you take off a glove, or any tiny bit of lint you've picked up.
    The pale colors show any tiny drop of blood or ink or anything else, that you might be "wearing" and don't realize it.


    I like medium colors, for best chance of looking good all shift long.

    At the hospital I work, the physicians usually wear street clothes and a white lab coat. The registered nurses have (are required) to wear navy blue.

    Where I work, we tried for a little while having all the licensed nurses wear white lab coats over street clothes and all the CNAs wore scrubs. It didn't last too long, cause most of the nurses missed scrubs. Personally, I kind of liked it. But most of the residents' families referred to me as "that really nice doctor who passes pills and empties urinals."

    See, when I tried it, I tended to look more like a giant, hairy drag queen....
