What type of uniform do you wear?
- 0Mar 22, '11 by FloridaGrad2012hi everyone, i know that not everyone can answer my question but i was wondering what type of uniform do you wear? and what type of hospital and unit do you work at? like if you work at a county hospital do you wear solids or prints and if you work in labor and delivery do you get to wear character scrubs? also if you only get to wear solids do you get to wear patterns on holidays? thank you

As for holidays, we can wear christmas sweaters/print t-shirts in december if we want. Holiday print scrubs can be worn year round.
- 0Mar 23, '11 by elkparkI work in acute inpatient psych and wear street clothes. The "healthcare system" of which the hospital is a part has gone to a color-coded system of solid-color scrubs (RNs wear one color, LPNs another, RT another, etc.) and nurses at my facility have the option of wearing the scrubs if they choose (and a lot of the nurses do), but I've worked in psych for >25 years without ever wearing a uniform in a psych setting and I'm not about to start now.
When I am in a setting where I wear a uniform (and I have been, at times, in my career), I wear solid white; and real uniforms, not scrubs.
