What to consider when choosing nursing scrubs?

There are so many different  styles of nursing scrubs , so  you might find yourself overwhelmed when trying to choose. Here are a few considerations when choosing your scrubs.  First,  Consider your employer. There are some employers that require you to buy the scrubs from them. If this is the case you won’t have to worry about your choice. Some only require you to have certain colors and patterns. This also makes your decision easy and helps narrow it down. Some  medical facilities require you  to wear just basic colors while others allow  printed tops. Print scrub selections can be  and should be chosen while considering the patients you serve.  At the same time, make sure that if you are required to wear a certain color for the pants, that you make sure it will coordinate with your printed scrub top for a professional look.   There are lots of options in bright florals, veterinary prints, pediatric prints, patriotic prints and more.   So if your employer allows it, have some fun with the scrubs that you choose.  They can put patients at ease, create a cheerful environment and help you look your best at work.

Sizing of nursing scrubs

Every brand of nursing scrubs has  its own sizing chart. Before you purchase, consider the sizing chart for the best possible fit for you.  This is especially helpful when you are shopping online since you won’t be able to try the scrubs on.  Many online companies also offer petite and tall pants to make online shopping for medical personnel even more convenient.   To shop online where you have access to sizing charts visit Marcus Uniforms

History of nursing uniforms

In the 1880s ,  nursing uniforms were considered useful protect ion  against illness and were considered an expression of feminine virtue. In the beginning ,  uniforms were supposed to be “fever proof” and  to  cover the entire body. They were also used for identification purpose s . They included long sleeved dresses with starched  c ollars and sometimes  even included a bow   tie. During the First World War there was a need to mass-produce the uniforms with a demand for easy cleaning. Tippets ,  a short cape ,  were added to the uniforms to denote rank. During the Second World War  , the dress was shortened to mid calf and the chinstraps were removed from the caps. Eye catching uniforms were used to attract more women into nursing. Nursing uniforms continued to  evolve throughout the 50s and 60s. In the 60s ,  the change result ed  in open collared uniforms. In the 1970s  , disposable paper caps became popular. Now ,  caps have faded out of use.    New technology offers stain resistant, softer and easy care fabrics.  In addition, unisex scrubs have received more attention as more males enter the nursing field.

Scrub Sets

When you run a medical establishment, spending time purchasing or shopping for scrub sets can waste  valuable time.  You may also be surprised at how much money you spend on scrub sets over time especially if they need to be replaced often.  If you purchase from the same supplier month after month without comparing prices and available stock, you may be wasting your dollars.  However, you may not have the time it takes to compare various vendors and suppliers!


This is why buying scrub sets online is highly recommended.  Many find it's the best way to compare prices and available items without having to take too much time.  In most medical settings, a purchasing agent is required to three-quote their supplies, meaning you need to provide three different quotes from three different suppliers before you purchase anything, including scrub sets.  Having this system in place can save you money but also takes time to prepare.  We have an excellent selection of affordable scrub sets available on our site at


Marcus Uniforms also offers a 10% discount for orders over $300.



Scrub Jackets

When you purchase scrub jackets, you want to find those that are made of quality material that will last for years.  This means something thicker that won't rip easily but that is still comfortable to wear.  The material should also be natural fiber such as cotton or a cotton blend so that it breathes easily.  Stitching on the scrub jackets is also important; if they're not constructed properly they won't hold up well when they're laundered and this means replacing them more often.


Purchasing the cheapest scrub jackets you can find may not be the best choice.  Often they're much cheaper than other items for a reason; in the long run you may need to replace them more often because the fabric begins to wear or fall apart when laundered.  They may also be ill-fitting and uncomfortable, causing the medical staff to complain.  When purchasing scrub jackets, shop around and compare prices, but also check materials and fabrics of the clothes as well. This way you'll find scrub jackets that everyone wears comfortably but which you can still afford.  Check out our selection of scrub jackets at

There are few places as rough on clothes as a medical setting, and depending upon the type of setting you work in, your clothes may go through rigorous wear every day.  This is why Cherokee Workwear scrubs are a favorite for many hospital staff, as they're designed to move with your body for comfort but hold up to the conditions of a medical setting. They wash well and are made of poly/cotton with soil release.


This also means reinforced stitching, thicker materials, and a generous cut.  As you go through your day you'll notice that your Cherokee Workwear scrubs are comfortable to wear but stand up to the constant pressure of moving patients, lifting supplies, working with sharp objects, and so on.  Because Cherokee Workwear scrubs are meant to be so durable, this means you need to replenish your supplies less often, saving you money and effort in the long run.
