I recently heard of a traveling nurse that wears uniform
styles of the 40's 50's..a dress style white stockings shoes.
She was told from nursing heads she had to wear regular scrubs
so she went to the CEO ( small rural hospital)
She said "sir, I love wearing these styles because it makes my elder patients so happy
and it is comforting for them"......and he replied " Great, then you have my permission!"
I have to concur because when I wear "whites" the older people do like even those and will make positive comments.
So I really like this idea and just wonder does anyone know where to order retro style dress uniforms...I'm still searching and will post link if I find one?

Be a bit careful. Not only will wearing those uniforms make your elder patients happy, it will also make a certain segment of very strange "perverted" patients very happy. I'm not kidding. When I worked in the ED, I had a least one creepy guy a week ask me why I was not dressed in that uniform.
I've found the elderly like people in all white just as well...though I admit there were many many times I wished I could wear a scrub dress, as I am not a pants person.
