I am in the process of getting a contract signed and everything lined up for my first job after graduation. When I asked about dress code i found out that I will have to wear Navy scrubs
, or a Navy top with white pants. CNAs wear a different color, RT wears a different color, and LPNs wear a different color, Docs where Ciel blue or that wierd Gray color. We are however able to wear printed jackets of our choosing. I have noticed that if a hospital has the policy, often RNs wear Navy and White... I was wondering why these two colors are chosen so often. Although I do think it will be nice to be able to tell who is what by the colors they wear, I just wondered if anyone could tell me if there is some significance to the Navy and White combo?

Our hospital does not have a dress policy,
They seem to be happy as long as you cover up the important bits.
Personally I wear scrub tops, with military style BDU's (I like the pockets).
Our OR nurses even have to provide thier own scrubs (the circulators).
Needless to say our hospital can be quite colorful.
As far as Navy and white are concerned, I know that in the last hospital I worked in, navy was the only compramise the administrators would make to an otherwise all white uniform. We had to complain loudly that white would not work in an ICU enviornment.
