Questions and Answers
I am a about 6'0" and in good shape, so what brand of scrubs would look best on me. I want some scrubs that aren't so 'blah' looking. I guess i want something that is slightly boot cut pants (just so they will fit around the top of my shoes) and i really don't want scrubs that swallow me whole.
I am a guy by the way.
Congrats on your new job! My husband is an RN at one of our local hospitals. He buys alot of his scrubs from a uniform shop located in the hospital. He also shops at this website for men's scrubs:
Can anyone please give me some ideas on what brand name scrubs to buy? I was told the scrubs need to be Hunter's Green and I have found on the web multiple sites that sell scrubs for $9.99 a set (pant+top), but I don't know if these scrubs won't look cheap. I wouldn't buy Grey's Anatomy scrubs either because they are so expensive, but as a new employee I don't want to look cheap.
Please answer only if you know for sure what they wear at this specific hospital.
As a veteran of said hospital for some five years now, I can tell you that the best thing you can do is just buy the scrubs from the retail outlet they have a "deal" with. I suppose it's not altogether cheap, but the only way you can really look cheap working there is if your scrubs are some off color. Usually a darker color of scrubs means you went off the beaten path for a discount. Lighter color scrubs just look like they need to be replaced, because they've been over washed.
To be honest, if I were you I'd just buy one or two pairs of the cheapest ones you can buy to get you through your probationary period. Once you're through that, then you can consider spending a little more on the "correct" color.
Hunter Green… Isn't that reserved for Transport, Emergency Technicians, and Patient Aides? I can't remember, and it's been a while since I've worn scrubs at Willie B's.
Oh, one final note, and totally off topic from your question (but most important): BEWARE your online activity. Facebook, Twitter, Myspace, they are your enemy here. There are people in this organization paid to peruse social networking sites, and if you say "God I don't want to go to work" and your profile says you work at "Beaumont Hospital", they WILL write you up or fire you.
So be warned, and enjoy your stay! Good luck.
I like natural brands mostly.
Not really in order much:
3. Bare escentuals (bare minerals are a great foundation)
5. Dior (for their mascara and lip gloss)
6. Alima pure minerals
7. L'oreal (bare naturale line)
8. Sephora (they have mostly good products)
9. St. Ives (love their fresh apricot scrub. The rest of their formulations have parabens so boooo but it's like 3.50 at target. I realize it's not makeup but we all need proper skincare!)
10. Mac (only for their eye kohls)
I was just recently offered a job at a dental office wrapping supplies/instruments, cleaning rooms etc…and I need scrubs. I start Monday, so online wasn't exactly an option, so I went out to Walmart and got some since it's the only place in town that sells them.
1) How is the quality of Walmart scrubs? I bought 2 sets but if they're no good then I can return one and just do a lot of laundry until I can order others online.
2) How many sets of scrubs should I have? I'll be working 4 days a week.
3) My boss just said scrubs and didn't particularly care about the color or anything, but I want to be professional. The sets I bought are black and navy blue. Would another color be appropriate? What about print tops?
4) If I end up ordering more online, where can I get cheap ones? I don't want to spend any more than $20/item or $40/set (although of course, cheaper would be better) and want cheap or free shipping.
I have a Waldemard (Stupid spell check did that. It should be Walmart) top and bottom scrub. They seem to be holding up.
Yes, you can order online. This website Http://www.marcusuniforms.com/ has name brand scrubs for cheap.
If your employer didn't say no to prints, I would think that it was alright. Keep the receipts in case it isn't.
I have been a nurse for many years and without question Tafford makes the best scrubs out there. Their quality is great, their styles are fashionable and totally unique, and their service is the best. I have bought from them for years.
Everyone always asks me where I get my scrubs, and I always tell them Tafford! I get so many compliments!
