    We wear burgundy/wine colored scrubs supplied my the surgery center I work for.

    When I worked at the hospital I wore solid pants:usually black, navy or royal blue, or wine. Scrub tops were solid to match bottoms or Disney tops. I liked wearing my Mickey and Minnie tops.

    At my current hospital system, RNs wear navy, CNA wear wine, lab wear eggplant, someone else wears grey, green, etc.

    Another system has RNs wearing blue and techs/PCAs wearing wine, as well... so at least that stays the same!

    I've noticed some nurses wear the scubs with flowers and stuff on it. I don't like that. If it were up to me, I would dress like the triage nurse I saw a couple of weeks ago. He had paramedic bdu cargos and the hospitals polo shirt on. I thought that looked kind of spiffy. Anyway, since I'm a male, and im sure scrubs at some point will be required for me, please NO pink, purple, violet or anything like that. LOL

    My clinic has no dress code as of yet but I stick with solid colors for the most part. I am not a fan of print type scrubs unless you work in Peds. That's just me though, I think I was exposed to too many Betty boop and tweedy bird scrub tops at my last job. I would dread an all white dress code, I would constantly look like a freaking slob, I just spill too many things like my tea or pen ink.

    Now, I bet you would have looked adorable in those little tweedy bird scrubs You should make that your avatar if you have a pic floating around.

    My hospital is color coded by unit and title so every unit has different colors but ALL nurses have to wear white tops while others like techs where the same color top as the bottom. The unit i just got hired on is white tops hunter green bottoms

    We are colored coded by job. Nurses wear navy blue, techs royal blue, lab maroon, radiology brown, respiratory black, pharmacy hunter green.

    Many patients have commented on how much they like it cause it's easier for them to identify staff.

    It really depends on your facility ... mine its wear whatever you want so long as its scrubs. So you have pcas, RN, lpns, wearing long lab coats, short white coats, white pants, pinks, fusha, purple, erm I wear batik prints and hello kitty so yea. uniform its whatever your company decides on. I agree that its helpful to have a set color so at one glance you can tell who is who.
