I work at our local hospital. I am not a nurse but I do need to wear scrubs, I wear them because it saves my everyday clothes from all the germs kicking around there, they are more comfortable to be in all day and they are a lot cooler then traditional clothes and in our hospital at least they rarely turn on the A/C so it is always hot.
The problem with wearing scrubs is that other then Walmart there is nowhere local for me to buy my nursing scrubs. I have turned to many stores online to make my purchases from, I am not the only one who feels this way either. I have talked to many other nurses and even a doctor or two who prefer scrubs and they all have the same complaint, that they cannot find scrubs or even White lab coats locally and they have to go online.
I actually like shopping online though so I am OK with this, I am too lazy to go out. Actually the real truth is in the summer it is too hot and in the winter it is too cold so I do my best to avoid going out in either season at all costs.
