Vent about scrubs - Page 5Register Today!
- Mar 5 by monkeybugQuote from xoemmylouoxWhen I was pregnant I tried to do as the other pregnant nurses did, and wear the scrubs provided for MDs (you know, the unisex, not really made for curvy short women scrubs?). That lasted about 2 shifts and then I ordered some maternity scrubs from Sassy Scrubs. They were NOT cheap, but I ordered 3 sets and I chose pockets, material, length, etc. Worth every penny, although I did get tired of rotatating the same 3 outfits every day I worked.Scrubs are not flattering in general. I'm pregnant now and it's worse.. You have to wear bigger tops or you feel like you can't breathe. I have found that a t-shirt with a scrub jacket works best.. I can't button that jacket, but still feel super comfy in a t-shirt..
- Apr 10 by sandyfeetI have to add to this vent thread! My first "nice" pair of scrubs I ever bought, somehow my fiancé got bleach on them. Tossed in the trash. My next expensive pair, they started out as a navy blue and now are eggplant purple! The brand is Healing Hands. I guess I will toss them too. Also, our washing machine was out of commission for a few days and I ran to Walmart to buy scrubs. Somehow I didn't notice that I was buying pants with an elastic waistband (as opposed to drawstring). Argh!!! I've only been a nurse for 9 months!
- Apr 14 by GeslinaYou all should count your blessings! We wear uniforms - called "patty tunics" where I work. We can wear any white scrub pants or white shoes, but have to wear these hideous dirty gray pink colored double breasted hip length shirts with collars and lapels, they are made of mostly polyester, in this sort of ribbed fabric - they don't breathe or have any give AT ALL...they are ugly, hot, sweaty, and uncomfortable. Oh, and they have to be IRONED. It can't get any worse.
Very sad, what with all the cute and colorful scrubs to choose from.... =( But, what the heck. The way things are right now, I am happy to be working.
- Apr 16 by SNB1014my nursing school uniform was unisex and i looked like a navy fridge. it was just atrocious. i honestly felt like a huge dork wearing them.
nurses are not vain people for the most part and we aren't particularly fussy. that said, i will wear my form fitting greys that make my butt looks awesome. someday soon enough my husband and i will start having kids and this bootay will be a thing of the past. i wear the xsmall greys tops- they are made for a womans body!
it does not make me less intelligent or somehow a nursemaid because i don't wear pants that give me a saggy diaper bottom :-)
