I would like to hear some views on uniforms. I am a student now, and have to wear all white at clinicals. Maybe I just haven't found the right scrubs
yet, but I do not feel comfortable in my scrubs. They are physically comfortable, but I feel funny in them. My previous career always had me wearing dress pants, dress shirt and a tie. So, I have a hard time feeling professional in these scrubs. They seem like I am wearing pajamas. They are all baggy and stuff. Maybe I just need to get used to wearing them. I have been thinking of finding some white casual dress pants. Like dockers or something. That way I will have normal pockets, I can wear a belt, and they will fit me better. With that, I could wear a white short sleeve dress shirt. I am thinking that I would feel more professional, and more like I am at work. Or maybe I could wear a white polo type shirt with the pants. Maybe that would be better. Either way, I would end up having a collor.
I thought I would post this here, and see if anyone else has experienced this feeling. Or maybe I am just a weirdo. Anyway, I would love to hear from other male nurses or students like me about what they wear to work.
