Worst Scrub Color Ever Worn

  1. 1. Worst Scrub Color Ever Worn

72 members have participated

Hi Everyone,

Besides white scrubs,

I was wondering what you all thought the worst scrub color that you have ever had to wear as a nurse? And this can be for any reason... whether it makes you feel silly, reminds you of something gross, or makes you feel unattractive, reminds you of a past employer where a different occupation was assigned that color, etc..

Feel free to take the poll.

Thanks!

I'm not sure what you're looking for here. The worst color I've ever seen required is an electric blue color that the ICU required. Fortunately I worked in CCU where the color required was a lovely teal.

Hi Ruby Vee, this is the first poll that I have ever created. Do you have any tips? Or, was anything confusing about the questioning? Thank you for responding anyways! I personally dislike royal blue because that was my nursing school's uniform color.

Hmmm...I have never been "required" to wear a certain color.

My sister's LVN program made them wear forest green. It was universally unflattering. And white shoes. They had to have clean white shoes every day!

My hospital does not require certain scrub colors for nurses, but I would imagine wearing full yellow or pink would not necessarily be "ugly," it just wouldn't match the environment. I normally wear black, teal-green, olive green, or blue. I did like my nursing school color which was maroon pants. I am not a fan of any white either.

White. It's hard to prevent stains, and if your skin is darker than olive your underwear shines through.

We wear black and I quite like it :)

Of course, it's used in combination with red and gray so no one actually has to wear all black. But I mostly do.

My husband on the other hand can't get used to the idea of a nurse in black scrubs!

Apparently my girlfriend has witnessed the lime green scrubs before. I am still surprised anyone would have to wear this color, however!
