Question for those about to graduate

  1. Have you started buying uniforms? I have spent my time snowed in shopping online. I have ordered 5 prs pants, 7 shirts, 2 jackets & 1 pair of shoes. I am trying to buy plains & prints to mix & match (just like mom made me do with school clothes!) Do you think that is enough? I didn't buy any white pants, I am so tired of them!!! LOL! :roll What are you getting? I also ordered 2 really cute pooh pens on a rope!
    I was supposed to go to a job fair at a local college today, but it was canceled. I hope they reschedule it soon!

    In my last couple of semesters we've been allowed to wear scrubs to clinicals, so I'm gradually collecting a scrub wardrobe. For the most part, I'm sticking to solids, but I do have a couple of jackets to add over top, or a long sleeve t-shirt or turtleneck since our ED is pretty cold.

    Personally, my biggest investment is in good shoes and good support hose. No way am I getting vericose veins if I can help it.

    I'm adding to my collection a little at a time. I go to life uniform when they have the sales and I look through various places online for good deals.

    Cyberkat I agree about the support hose. I want to do my best to prevent varicose veins too.

    same here. i've had a wonderful time buying scrubs. i work in the ED now and scrubs are provided by the hospital but we can wear our own if we so choose. over the last several weeks i've acquired several new outfits. i've worn a couple of them to work already and gotten many compliments on them.

    We wear whites in our program and I don't work in direct care, so I don't wear scrubs to work.

    I've been putting off buying scrubs because I'm not sure where I'm going to work and what the dress code will be... I'd hate to have a closet full of sponge bob scrubs and not be able to wear them.
