Weird question. In ICU, what do your managers/educators/CNS wear to work? I think I have seen it all. Our DNO wears professional (skirt/suits/pantyhose) and usually a white lab coat, my director (male) and other managers (also male) wears casual khakis and button down shirts. I have worked with another female manager who wore scrubs
, which was weird because I never saw her touch a patient. I'm in line for an ICU manager job and clinical educator and am wondering how I should dress. I could do scrubs, but I don't have the right colors (new hospital) but was thinking casual slacks and a lab coat might suit my style better. I am a clogs and sneakers kind of gal and felt like an imposter in my pantyhose/suit for the interview. Am I ready to "graduate" to the white coat? Our caseworkers and chart review team do... Thanks for your thoughts.
