I'm not sure what kind of uniforms we will have yet, but I'll find out this coming Wednesday. The class from last year had some nice looking knit shirts with a collar, that were in a unisex style, and were a teal green color. The pants were basic white and looked pretty neat also. We have to purchase our uniforms from the same store, so we will all have the same type of uniforms. I don't like this idea, but I'll have to go along with the program. We are responsible for finding our own shoes, which seems to be a simple task, unless you're a man like myself. We have very limited resources for nursing type shoes, or at least anything I would want to wear (I'm very particular about my shoes and boots!). I've got a pair of K-Swiss atheletic shoes that I bought for my CNA clinicals a few years ago, but I'm going to try and find something that I like better (Wish me luck!) I do think that the nursing programs
across this country are going to have to start catering to the men also. Each year there are more and more men entering this field, with many more to come in the near future. I'm just glad that I got into the program this time around, because there's a lot of people taking their prerequisites right now and will be trying for the program next time around. I hope my uniforms aren't some kind of sissy color
If it were my choice, I might choose a camouflage pattern, preferably the Advantage Timber
. I don't fit the mold of your "typical" nurse, if you guys haven't noticed. Take care guys. I'm OUT. Darby
P.S. Oh yeah, PEACE!
