Nurse Appreciation Day kicks off the start of Nurse Appreciation Week May 6. Nurse Appreciation Week is celebrated annually from May 6 through May 12. Florence Nightingale, whose birthday was May 12, is honored during this week for her role in founding modern nursing practices.
Show your favorite nurse how much you care with some new nursing accessories, from Marcus Uniforms. Don't forget about the nurses who work in family clinics, nursing homes, veterinary clinics, schools and home hospice in addition to hospital nurses.
Lanyards and badge holders can be an excellent gift choice for nurses. Lanyards are a more versatile option because they can be used to carry both keys and badges. Or if your nurse doesn't want to carry their keys on them, there are many badge holders to choose from. Badge holders come in a couple of different styles to suit the personality of any nurse. Some are worn like a pin and can be fastened anywhere on your scrubs while others merely clip onto a pocket. Some badges may need to be scanned to enter through doorways for security purposes. Having a badge holder with a retractable cord is a must for these situations. This will prevent wasting time fumbling to get your badge out while still keeping you tidy and organized.
Watches are another fabulous gift idea. With a great selection of watches for both men and women finding one that will be loved should be a snap. There are dressier watches with analog clock faces, sporty digital watches with stopwatches and fun playful watches with Disney characters.
Tote bags can complete a nursing ensemble. These come in multiple sizes and colors. Some have patterns while others are solid. Solid colored totes are a great choice because they can be customized with embroidery. There are many stock embroidery logos to choose from as well as multiple monogram styles. In addition to logos and monograms; just having text, such as a name, is also an option. Adding embroidery, whether it's a name, a logo or a monogram, is a nice way to really personalize your gift.
Of course, if you're unsure what your nurse likes, a gift certificate is a great option. Gift certificates from Marcus Uniforms are even better because they are offered in any amount from $5 to $5000 and are super easy to use.

How surgical scrubs have changed
Surgeons did not have any specialized clothing until the 20th century. Surgeons could wear their street clothes and used an apron to prevent bloodstains on the clothes. As everyone become more aware of the spread of disease and germs surgeons began to add more to their wardrobe such as masks and gloves. This is also why the white surgical uniform became popular. This was done to emphasize cleanliness. Then the combination of the bright lights in an operating room and the white caused eyestrains on the surgeons and scrubs where then changed to green to provide a better contrast. In 1970 the attire was a short sleeve V-neck shirt and drawstring pants much like it is today. They were labeled as surgical greens because of the color. Now scrubs don’t have to be green and it is not uncommon to see surgical scrubs of other colors or even patterns depending on the hospital.
Find today’s surgical scrubs
Today you can find surgical scrubs in a number of places if you don’t automatically receive them from the hospital. Scrubs are definitely an important part of the medical field and are needed. Visit Marcus Uniforms to find a variety of scrubs.
