    It looks like the kind of uniform we wear in the UK. We tend to just call it a uniform either dress or tunic.

    Is there a particular reason that you are asking?

    Yeah, I was thinking it was kinda cute.....if you had a 24 inch waist.

    It's a very cute nursing dress, but I don't know how pratical it would be to wear in a hospital or health care setting. With all the bodily fluids, MRSA, etc that we're exposed to in the nursing field, I'd want to wear pants to protect myself. Maybe cute for a doctors office?? good luck

    Moved to nursing scrubs and uniform

    If you are looking for this type of uniform then I would suggest and internet search. There are companies in the UK that sell them but I am not sure of US companies that supply them.

    Try a search for work wear or uniform supplies.

    Standard British/UK nurses uniform.

    http://forum.uniforminsignia.net/vie...197c68a8e09399 Often colour of uniform and or belt gave an indication of rank and where a nurse worked. Ward sisters (floor nurses) would wear one colour while matrons (head nurses) another

    Belt is because the uniforms are not very fitted at the waist to cover multiple sizes in a range, so one wears the belt to adjust the fit. Don't think have ever seen a USA nurse wearing one, though have seen them in adverts.

    It's cute, i just dont know if it would agree with the frequent bending over and interesting colors of bodily fluids. Ah, all the colors of the rainbow
