Nursing Scrubs and Their Varieties
Nursing scrubs have emerged from their prosaic pristine white middy-and-skirt combinations to hip style scrubs. The ever-changing trends in the fashion world have radically altered uniform designing, and so has it for nursing scrubs. Over time, these scrubs have multiplied in variety, in terms of component, style, and color, and in present days scrub outfits are nothing like what they used to be before. Scrub pants, scrub tops, scrub jackets, scrub shoes and caps are launched in the market in sets and individually to serve their respective functions. So, now nurses can look stylish and decent at work, without sacrificing the comfort and functionality of their work wears.
Nursing Scrubs Styles
With the passage of time and change of fashion, nursing scrubs of diverse styles have landed in the store shelves. Currently, the varieties are not limited to unisex boot-cut and straight-fit scrubs. Apparently, the designers have experimented with the traditional styles and have come up with new designs, some of which are three-fourth sleeves, button front, drawstring, double-breasted, closed back, A-line, etc. The regular scrubs come in two-pieces consisting of a top and a pair of pants. The scrubs with V-neck collars and roomy sleeves are good to wear with contrasting colored T-shirts. The pants are normally the pull-on kind with an elastic waist that can be easily worn in a huff. If your fashion is not the traditional kind, then try the flattering sporty sets that come in a variety of solid colors and crossover necklines, paired with hip-hugging drawstring pants.
The scrub sets are trendy and professional, depending on the color used. Mostly solid colored, the nursing scrubs come in an endless variety of colors. Navy, cell blue, lime, aqua, pear, black, sunshine, cherry blossom, carnation, shocking pink, etc. are some of the popularly chosen colors for medical scrubs. The uniforms in both the pieces are colored same with contrasting necklines, sleeve edges, and rims. They are even cute to wear outside.
What Fabrics Are Perfect For Nursing Scrubs
The uniforms are made of different materials, depending on the design and functions of the dresses. In most cases, a blend of polyester and cotton is used to tailor the scrubs that are fairly comfortable to wear. Full cotton or polyester scrubs are also available in the market, keeping with the requirement of the buyers. For nurses especially, the scrub fabrics are treated with anti-microbial agents so that they do not gather germs and infections from the surrounding environment.
The nursing scrubs sold in the market are available in all sizes, as wearers of different body types working as nursing professionals purchase them. Available both in land-based stores as well as at online counters, nursing scrubs are diversely priced, depending on their design, materials, and brands. Buy them online to avail discounts, since the brick-and-mortar stores have inflexible pricing. Choose your source correctly in order to make sure that you pay for quality scrubs only. A brand is definitely a point to consider when buying the scrub sets. Unisex scrub sets are relatively cheap compared to those designed specifically for a particular gender.
Questions and Answers
Difference between a Scrub nurse, Theatre nurse, and an ODP.?Ok, so this is like 3/4 questions in one: I’m looking into courses to study at uni. I really want to be involved with surgeries so a theatre nurse would be my best bet. However, when I googled it, the NHS website says that theatre nurses work alongside Scrub nurses. This confused me because I cant find out what the difference between the two is. Whenever I google it, results for theatre nurse just come up.As well as this I have been looking into Operating Department Practice. I’m a little bit confused as to what the difference between an ODP and a theatre nurse is. To my understanding, both are responsible for equipment used but the nurse also gets to work on the wards.I like the sound of becoming an ODP but there are 2 courses to choose from. A 2-year course which is a dip and a 3 year Honors. So my questions are: what is the difference between all three? Which is better to get into eg/ pay, knowledge est… Are you trained to perform anything extra in the 3yr hons? And out of all 3 jobs, (if you complete the relevant training) can you assist in an operation?
