I only wear scrubs (solid color) for after-hours ER coverage.
I wear a white lab coat probably half the time otherwise.

I wear business casual with a long blue pin-striped lab coat with my name and credentials on one side and my practice's logo on the other side. Love the lab coat because of the pockets.

Depends on the specialty. Where I work, NP's in surgical specialties like myself wear hospital-issued white lab coats with logo and embroidered name and department over hospital-issued OR scrubs. NP's in medical specialties wear the same coat over business casual attire. I've seen some Neonatal NP's and CNM's wear colorful printed scrubs.
Myself and all the NPs I've had as preceptors wear business casual and white lab coat, I am in the office setting.
