What color scrubs do you wear?

Rating:

I love white scrubs. I think they make us look more professional and clean etc. I just hate the fact that you have to be very careful not to get them dirty.
I am just curious about the color scrubs that you wear in your floor and your opinion about them.
I apologize, if this thread already exists.
I agree that hospitals that have nurses wear the same color look more professional. I personally do not think that printed scrubs are appropriate, but I know a lot of nurses wear them. I am starting at UCLA next month and the RNs wear navy scrubs, and all the different disciplinaries wear different shades of blue so patients and employees can identify their role easily.

The Trust uniform (mandatory) of blue and white striped tunic trimmed at the collar, sleeves and pockets with dark blue piping and embroidered "NHS" logo on the right sleeve worn with dark blue pants.No jewellery except wedding ring and plain stud earrings allowed, black shoes only.Boring or what?

Comment:
I wear whatever color I like, which is usually some shade of blue, or hot pink & black. No prints for me - I don't like them.I wear a watch and earrings. No rings.

At my fulltime job, all RNs are required to wear "blueberry" colored scrubs (like royal blue, but a tiny shade lighter). You can wear either matching pants or black pants. My unit also allows us to wear the OR surgical greens if we want (which I hate because there are NO pockets on the tops). At my part-time job, I float to three different hospital systems in the network, and each hospital has its own policy. Hospital A, you can wear what you want, but I always wear the OR surgical scrubs (which are kind of powder blue-gray, rather than green). Hospital B, you can wear the OR surgical scrubs or you can wear royal blue. Hospital C, they're just implementing a dress code starting in September, and RNs wear navy blue.It's very confusing, and for the first time in my life I actually have to go out and buy scrubs for myself. At my previous job, I just wore the hospital-issued surgical greens.

We can wear white pants and any colored/print top we want. I prefer black solid or print tops .. slimming.. which white pants are not.

Comment:
I wear Black Cargo scrub pants (pocket for my BBerry Drug book and I text people about open shift works much better than a phone call.) print scrub tops... Leaves are my theme. white new balance tennis shoes (my choice.) I can wear street clothes if I want but prefer scrubs.

Are you allowed to wear wristwatches? Those are a big no-no in the UK. Most Trusts have a strict "Bare below the elbow" policy and you will catch it from Infection Control if you wear a wristwatch,

Comment:
At our hospital RNs wear royal blue scrubs , LVNs wear ceil blue scrubs and other medical professionals wear different color scrubs.

Comment:
Yes, we can wear wristwatches (I would be utterly lost without mine).Every hospital has its own policies, but the hospital I work at, for jewelry, says "rings to a minimum" (which is vague and open for interpretation), and as far as facial jewelry, we're allowed one stud in the nose, and a limit of three earrings per ear.

we can wear watches. At my hospital RN's wear galaxy blue with the option of black pants and a black undershirt. I think we look way too dark. I work on an ortho floor and our running joke is that we match our pts, black and blue.

Comment:
That's interesting klone. Here in the UK we are not allowed to wear any rings other than a plain wedding band and one stud in each ear.As for watches we all wear fob watches that pin on to the uniform.Dadgummed UK. Medieval much?
