Where should I purchase scrubs?

  1. I am just looking for some cheap scrubs. Should I look for ones on the internet or just try to find them around town?

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    You can on the internet. JC penney carries scrubs. Maybe your town has some medical clothing stores. Where I live there is a thrift store 1/2 block away from the hospital. We needed to wear a lab coat for orientation and I wasn't about to spend 30 on something I would only wear maybe 2 times. I purchased it at the thrift store for 2.99. and also two smocks for 3.00. We are required to wear white, so that is pretty easy to find. It is just an idea, I just try to save where and when I can. J

    I just happened to go to Sam's Club this weekend and found a package that contained 2 scrub tops and a pair of scrub bottoms for under $20. It was in an odd part of the store, close to the medicines/shampoos etc. isle (not the clothes part of the club).

    Also, JASCO uniform has pretty decent prices--I've ordered tons of stuff from them and they've always been very reliable.

    Of course, if you're a hard to fit size, you might do better trying them on at a local store.

    Good luck--happy shopping!

    I haven't gotten to that point yet! Wearing all white, that is! It is my Microbiology professor wants us to wear scrubs to class, so we can start getting used to wearing them. Is it just me or is she looney? Before answering, please read my previous posts regarding my micro class.

    Thank you, all! for responding to my request. I will be heading to Wally-World or Sams sometime this week to see what I can find.

    Thank you, again!

    I work at wal-mart..i was pleasantly surprised to find the scrubs there! they are cheap too! i think a pair of white scrub pants were $12!! They are a little tricky to find..you have to look in the pajama aisle(!?!?!?) but they are there.
    Also...i think your micro teacher DOES sound absolutely crazy. What a care plan you could do on her... she wants you to wear scrubs to class so you can get used to wearing them?? what if there are people in your class that aren't in nursing? i know there are some Agricultural Science people in my micro class! that's crazy! well good luck with micro...i'm goin through the same thing right now! and good luck w/ your scrub search!
