What Nurses Shouldn't Wear with their Uniform by Idowu Olabode : September 12, 2015, 04:12:57 PM
Nurses should look professional when wearing their
uniforms. Because only with this will they receive the
right respect they truly deserve. Nurses' uniforms may
also give inspiration for their patients. That is why it is
important to be dressed properly and accordingly, so as
not to create confusion and disrespect.

Though there are nurses who wants to flaunt trademark
of their personality, a nurse should wear their uniforms as
it should be so that they will be seen as a professional
healthcare worker right at the start. As they say, first
impressions last.

Nurses should always:

Be mindful and careful with the undergarments you wear.

Since most of the nurses nowadays wear white nursing
scrubs for their uniforms, it may only be right to choose
the appropriate undergarments to go with it. Do not wear
undergarments with bold colors, that you knew would
show through your scrubs. Instead, pick nude colors so
your 'professionalism' won't be scrubbed off you.

Do not over-accessorized.

Accessories are supposed to add details and attraction to someone over his or her attire. But over doing it, that is something anybody should avoid. Simple earrings, wristwatch or bracelet will do as an accessory. But too many blings on you will distract your patient on thinking how credible and professional you really are. Remember that you are at work, and not attending a party or disco club to be too

Don't mix too many bright colors, and don't be too 'gothic'

 You can wear a yellow top to a white pants, but
not the way too sunny yellow top so as not to create a
very bright image for your patient. Add darker shade to
your scrub outfit if there is already a lighter one. You can
pair darker blue scrubs to any fun colors, just like with
black pants. But you shouldn't wear an all-black scrub
outfit as it can look depressing to your patients and co-

Wear appropriate attire to the type of patients you'll work

If you are to work in pediatric ward and dealing with
younger patients, then it's okay to wear superman,
spongebob squarepants and barbie scrub suit, as this will
add entertainment and fun to your patients. But if you are
to deal with adults or older patients, don't wear scrubs
like those because honestly, it is not appropriate.

Keep your shoes as clean as possible.

You may be wearing your scrub nicely pressed, your hair combed neatly, your hands clean and sanitized, but have you checked your shoes? If you ought to keep your presence as a professional healthcare worker, then you should maintain it all the way from head to toe. You don't want your patient to think of you as a germ or disease carrier if your shoes are that filthy, don't you?

Obey the dress code policy in your hospital.

If your hospital requires you to follow a nursing uniform policy,then do it. Whether you like it or not, whether others are strictly following the rule or not, you should do follow it.
This is the first step for you to show how professional
you are.

Remember nurses, the scrub suits you are wearing adds
impact on your credibility. So it is only better to suit up
the way you really should be. Tacky clothing implies
clumsy work. And you don't want it to be an impression
to you. Wear your scrub suit with proud. Give it the right
respect as it will give you the respect from people you'll
work with.

This is an interesting article. I am also a nurse and prefer buying simplest designs and softest fabrics for my nursing scrubs. I personally think that comfortable clothes are extremely important when it comes to a long hour’s job. is my favorite website for that.
