What do your school uniforms look like?

Perhaps this will turn out to be an interesting topic to discuss.

What color/style are the uniforms that you all wear (or have worn) to clinical rotations? I currently attend an LPN-to-RN bridge program. The scrubs at the school that I currently attend are maroon. They consist of a unisex tunic top and unisex bottoms. We have the option of wearing a white warm-up jacket on cool days.

When I was attending an LVN program back in 2004 and 2005, our uniforms consisted of a unisex royal blue tunic scrub top and white pants. We also had the option of wearing a white warm-up jacket on cold days.

I am in the LPN-RN transition but the uniforms that all nursing students wear at my CC are solid unisex royal blue tops and bottoms and white lab coat if necessary........

in LPN school our uniforms were navy blue with a scout patch on the sleeve.

Landau steel gray scrubs with black warm up jacket.

This is interesting.

I find it rather curious that no one has posted yet about having to wear white uniforms for their nursing program's clinical rotations. In my opinion, white uniforms used to be the classic mark of a nurse. I guess this concept has changed.

That's us...white. White top with blue piping and school logo on the pocket, white pants. The women's top pulls over the head, men's has a zipper. They are pretty bad :eek:

My school had white pants and blue top. Changed it due to the white being see through.

I also have to wear white scrubs! I don't like it at all. I know it's traditional and what not but geez everything gets on white! Our scrubs are not unisex and they are surprisingly cute. Our pants are somewhat flared :) We are also required to wear our school patch on our left sleeve. We get two patches for free and have to purchase the others. Our lab coats are also very feminine and require a patch as well. I am jealous of those who get to wear colored scrubs. It would be nice to not have to worry about constantly about wearing white!

This sounds a lot like the LVN/LPN program that I attended in southern CA. My classmates and I wore royal blue scrub tops and white bottoms. My white pants were see-through and it really showed if I was wearing the wrong type of panties.

We (LPN students) wear the maroon top and bottoms, RN's (students) wear the royal blue

ok i am going to date myself but back when i went to school, our uniforms were dresses. it was a green and white pinstripe, also it had to fall below our knee, we wore white( not nude) stockings and nursing shoes not sneakers and when we were in our 2nd year and we were "capped" we also wore our caps. which by the way we were extremely proud to wear.

Mines are cherokee uniform baby blue with our school's logo inscribed on the left side. They are a great brand, but they are little but too long! LOL! Better than some of the ugly ones I've seen.

Our school wears white too. The tunics are zip up, with the forest green stripe on the sleeve, and school patch on the arm. We got to buy our own white pants..I chose the Urbane flip pant :) I'm in the RN program by the way, not sure what the LPN's wear, their building is across the street from the main campus

it was ALL white when i was n school. that included ALL white undies, shoes, socks, t-shirt (if u wore one) etc if u were light skinned. darker skinned folks had to wear darker undies that didn't show, basically they didn't want to see ppl's panties/undies/bras thru the scrub top/bottom.

I am in LPN school and we have to wear all white uniforms and a white lab jacket with our school patch on the right arm. Our shoes have to be white. Our hair has to be up in a bun if it's long and only 2 rings per hand and 2 lobe earrings per ear....Very very strict.

We wore white scrubs, no shirts allowed underneath, white leather shoes, stud earrings only, no necklaces, only rings allowed were wedding rings. We had an 'underwear talk' the first day of school, lol! Graduated in December......haven't gotten around to having a scrub burning party yet.

For me, community college ADN program--it was white. Any type of scrub top and bottom but had to be white. Transfered to another program and they had a specific manufacturer (Angel, something or other). Again, white but had a 1 inch blue trim on the bottom of the sleeve. There were two styles: scrub and a fitted top with a collor and tie back--very cute. However, the uniforms and the material they were made will last for at least 10 years. Oh, blue school patch on shoulder.
