Student Uniform - My Gosh! - page 3

The good news – I was accepted into my nursing BSN program for next semester! The bad news – we have a required white dress which is as thin as cheap drape, and the hem hits 2 inches above... Read More

    the more i think about this post, the more certain i am that it is a scrub catalogue is going to have this kind of picture/pose and especially without white hose.....this is likely a theatrical presentation of some kind

    Is this a joke? What is the name of your school? This just doesn't seem real...what is their reasoning? I understand why we have to all wear the school color, so we can be easily identified in the one wears white anymore and the few people I have seen wear scrubs dress were religious (the sisters that come to visit in one of the Catholic hospitals) and they were not white or that thin and certainly not that short!

    my mom showed me pictures of her uniform from when she graduated (in the early 80's) and it looked similar to this, but she had to wear a pinafore apron thing over the dress that looked like a blue and white checkered picnic table, white hose, and a flying nun's cap.

    a lady i worked with in NC showed me pictures of her uniform from the late 70's, and hers was by far the ugliest. they had to wear a brown dress with gold colored hose and brown shoes, and her cap looked like a french fry box from mcdonald's.

    i whined about having to wear a cap for two years... but it could have been so much worse.

    I think the bottom of the hem and the shape of the thighs is a sure sign that this was photoshopped.

    I'm lost for words ! That outfit is too " sexy looking" and should not be worn any where out side of a bedroom.

    Especially when bending down and lifting. Our dresses are below the knee, our school will NEVER allow us to wear something like that.

    Wow...that's very impractical. How are you supposed to turn/bend over in that?! I'd be paranoid about keeping myself covered the whole time I was wearing it. Of course, my uniform makes me look like an big white jelly bean, so idk which one is worse. At least that uniform is sorta cute, though awfully impractical.

    Man and I thought ours were bad. We have this ugly button down white shirt that would make even the skinniest person look fat and white pants--or a skirt--but the skirt goes past the knee for sure

    Good Lord! I cannot see doing the demanding work of a nurse in a dress!! I think it is kinda cute, but not practical or comfortable at all!!!

    For those who think the post may have been a joke, here's an item from a nursing catalog:


    It could still be a joke, but there's at least one example out there that is an equally horrible uniform....

    If I were forced to wear this. I would have to wear this underneath:

    But if I were in your shoes, I would make it a goal throughout nursing school to have their uniform policy rewritten...
