For those on economy’s margins, nursing aide job offers meager opportunity (Washington Post)
She had made it as far as the career school’s parking lot for the December training class and the February class, only to drive away each time in a tangle of anxiety and self-doubt. Now it was March, and here Tereza Sedgwick came again: dressed in the mandatory class uniform of red-and-black scrubs, a lit cigarette dangling in her fingers out the busted window of her ’88 Plymouth. She parked in the lot and watched a procession of unemployed workers enter the school building in southeastern Ohio, trying to will herself to join them.

Questions and Answers
How expensive are Scrubs?
How expensive are the medical uniforms (commonly known as Scrubs) to make and (for the hospital too) buy? I have heard they are pretty cheap on both accounts, Also what is the general policy about ownership, like can you have as many as you want, trade used for clean etc.
There are hospital-provided scrubs which are cheap for them to buy. You wear them if you work in surgery or other sterile areas. They usually don’t like you to take too many of them – some hospitals have vending machines that require you to return a pair before taking a new one.
Many people and most nurses prefer to buy their own scrubs – I’ve been getting mine at Tafford for years. They cost about $12 for a scrub top and $15 for a scrub pant – though they have great clearance sales of $9.99 and less! If you are in the market for scrubs, check out Tafford!
Does anyone know if Victorias Secret discontinued their spa line of products?
I am looking for their “spa pampering lotion” and I can’t find it anywhere but on eBay. I hope it hasn’t been discontinued! Thanks!
Hi! I think that the VS Spa line (light blue bottles) has been discontinued… I called VS and they have no products available. They are not in back order. I was only able to order the Foot Scrub and the Hand Cream (they are on sale right now) So, if you really love this line, I suggest that you go to your nearest VS store and stock yourself (i think that they are also on clearance at the stores). Hope this helps!!!! 🙂
Nursing scrubs companies?
I am looking for companies that sell medical scrubs for cheap, or well scrubs in general. I am not looking for a few dollars, but I want stuff that is cheaper than what I am finding. Any suggestions would be great!
Actually, any companies that sell them would be great.
Tafford has the best quality and tons of clearance specials. Their cheapest stuff is in the clearance section. Sometimes they have scrub tops starting at $4.99:
but you can also get solid scrubs for under $10 at regular price. Their quality is the best I have found – much better than scrubs you can get at other places for twice the price. Also, I am on their email list, and they always have great specials, sales, and free shipping through email.
Give them a try, I get all my scrubs there and have never been disappointed.
What is a good company (mail order) to buy medical uniforms from (scrub tops, etc.)?
I’m looking for good prices and a good selection of name brands…thanks!
I always liked to order online or through a catalog, myself–you can get some really good deals/clearance sales. I liked Jasco (basics) Http://www.jascouniform.com/medical-scru… and I loved Tafford (a much higher quality that washes and wears very well, and you can find awesome deals on their clearance online) Http://www.tafford.com/default.htm.
