    Carhartt scrubs! I can dig that!
    I am just a CNA and am going to be starting my first job this weekend, yay. The facility provides us with black scrubs that are a polyester blend. I hope it breaths well and doesn't wrinkle much since I dry my laundry on a clothes line.
    SlaveHeart, what do you mean you are "just a CNA"? I love CNAs, while in nursing school you were awesome to me :bowingpur

    I am round - in the wrong places, I used to love wearing NU DIMENSION Stretch and I can no longer find this brand, so I bought whatever Uniform City had on sale, Dickies or Cherokees, but nothing compared to these. I would love to find a pair of pants that can hold thick legs like the ones I have....and that it stretches, these were awesome and they last a long time. I too cannot see myself paying for Greys Anatomy; but then again even if I wanted to they are made for thin people - I tried a pair. I also love lots of pockets.

    If you're looking to purchase printed scrubs, polyester is definitely a way to go since it retains the vibrancy of the print and the colors no matter how many wash cycles you put it through.

    Hello my name is Joshua I have been a CNA for 2 years and make scrub tops at home. I have made a scrub top for a coworker last year and one for me. When we tried them out at work after a week I went back to her and she loved it and so did I but I am trying to find a good fabric where I can find prints that would appeal to both the male and female population in the nursing field. Personally I am looking for fabric that won't sacrifice a durability for flexibility that is sturdy holds it shape over years of use and can be worn year round.
