Current Trends In Nursing Scrubs

Nursing scrubs have come a long way over the past 10-15 years.  Veteran nurses may remember when your choice of scrub tops was a plain boxy v-neck, a unisex v-neck or the occasional mock wrap top and your scrub pant choices were almost as limited.  You may even think back to the white dress and box cap.  Today nurses are able to purchase scrubs in multiple styles, but it's not just the styles that have changed.  Fabrics are evolving, too.  For years nursing scrubs were made from stiffer, starchier feeling material.  


Well, no more!


Popular name scrub brands are now using softer materials which provide more comfortable work uniforms.  If you've ever tried Jockey Scrubs, you'll know that all of their scrubs are made from a softer material that also incorporates stretch.  Of course, if you like Jockey Scrubs, you should also check out Med Couture and new Fusion by White Swan.  Both options are also soft and stretchy providing comfort, function and style for your medical scrubs.


If you are not a fan of that small percentage of spandex for stretch,  not to worry, there are nursing scrubs out there for you, too.  One of the most popular options right now is Grey's Anatomy Scrubs.  With the right amount of softness added to a flattering fit, these scrubs are a fantastic and extremely popular choice.  If you are new to soft scrubs and are not sure what brand to try, Dickies Soft Works is the perfect solution.  Dickies Scrubs have been around for years and are trusted by many nursing professionals.  Their brand new Soft Works line has only improved on what is already a trust scrubs option.


Of course, a scrub line wouldn't be complete without pants.  Soft scrub pants are offered not only in regular length pants but also in petite pants and tall pants.  As always, you should purchase your scrub pants from the same line as your scrub top to ensure the colors match.


Now that you know a little about the current trends in nursing scrubs, it's time to do a little shopping.  Marcus Uniforms has a large inventory in all your current favorite scrub brands as well as any new favorites you may find.   Don't forget that when you spend $100 or more at Marcus Uniforms, you automatically get free shipping to any UPS deliverable address in the continental United States.  Pool your order with friends or co-workers to reach $300 and you'll receive a 10% discount.

Should you Wear Your Street Clothes with Your Scrubs?

On a recent doctor’s visit, I took advantage of my opportunity to scan the office to see what everyone was wearing. I observe which scrubs brands people prefer, whether the office has implemented a common dress code and what the first impression is as a result of that dress code.

As we walked in, we were met by several receptionists who were not in scrubs at all, but rather were casually, but professionally dressed. Because of the height of the counter, I could only see the tops, but they wore sweaters or blouses, and everyone looked appropriately dressed for an office job. When the nurse called my daughter into the exam room, I realized that some of the women behind the counter were not office personnel at all, but rather were medical personnel who had paired a sweater or blouse with their scrub pants and tennis shoes. I could not help but wonder who made the administrative decision to mandate or even allow a street clothes/scrubs combination for medical personnel and more, importantly, why? It ultimately came down to 4 choices, none of which made any logical sense: appearance, expense, comfort or indifference.

Appearance was easily dismissed. Did someone in the office really ponder then decide that a nice sweater and a pair of scrub pants evoke confidence, competence and caring? I’m sure that we’ve all seen someone that has mixed two styles that should have been kept far apart such as summer and winter fashions or fabrics. The sweater/scrub combination didn’t work. I have seen medical personnel that throw on a cardigan sweater or even sweatshirt over scrubs which I assume is because it offers more warmth than a scrub jacket. Here, the top resembled the clerical staff and the bottom resembled the medical staff. Together, they screamed fashion faux pas or perhaps just fashion confusion.

With so many inexpensive scrubs options available and scrub sets as inexpensive as $10.99 for the top and bottom, it is hard to believe that medical personnel in a pediatrician’s office would rally behind a policy that preferred street clothes to scrub tops. If they are already purchasing scrub pants, scrub tops have to be less expensive than a sweater or ready to wear top. Moreover, they are cheaper and easier to launder in the likely event that something gets soiled during the workday.

Comfort didn’t quite work either because scrub tops, unless they are unusually short, are more comfortable than professional wear. Medical personnel move around a lot and it is difficult to imagine that a sweater or blouse would be more comfortable over scrub pants than a scrub top, scrub jacket or scrub top with layered tee.

That left the most disheartening reason: indifference. Perhaps someone in an administrative office made the decision having never walked into the office to gauge first impression? Perhaps no one made the decision and over time, having received no positive or negative feedback, the personnel simply wore what they wanted. I wondered where that would lead. There were so many inexpensive professional scrubs options that would have easily identified the personnel in the office and presented a professional first impression to anyone walking through the door. Kids would love the bright colors or whimsical prints and adults would appreciate knowing that they are addressing a question or concern to the right person in the office.

New Skechers Scrubs

Functional, Comfortable, Affordable Scrub tops and Scrub Pants for Men and Women

Skechers recently jumped into the medical scrubs market with a new line of functional fashion scrubs for men and women. The unisex line is just that: a line of scrubs that both men and women will be comfortable wearing. The scrub top features a soft cotton/polyester twill with a great shape and 4 pockets: a chest pocket, 2 front welt pockets that are well hidden at the side seams as well as a distinctive outer cell phone pocket above the hip. Skechers shaped the top for a slimming appearance with front and back side panels. The coordinating unisex scrub pant is equally well designed. Made of the same soft and comfortable fabric, it features an adjustable web drawstring and an elastic waist as well as a mock fly front. There are 5 functional pockets: side cargo pockets with yet another cell phone pocket and instrument or pen holder as well as 2 slash pockets and 2 back cargo style pockets with velcro flaps. Available in several colors from XS-3X, it offers a much needed slightly sporty modern upgrade to the ever reliable unisex scrub options.

For the women, Skechers used its experience in sportswear to design a well fitting, modern scrub ensemble that is still professional and functional. The warm-up scrub jacket features princess seams and back elastic for a more flattering fit, front kangaroo pockets, bottom band, rib knit cuffs and a zipper front. Also in brushed cotton/poly, it updates the scrub warm-up with a little touch of sport and comfort. The scrub warm-up can be paired with Skechers’ new long-sleeve tee. Skechers incorporated the popular burnout technique to add sheer words of healing, hope, caring and love to this great layering tee. Whether you like an added layer under your v-neck scrub tops or want to wear it under the Skechers’ jacket, it’s comfortable and stylish.

Skechers also deviated from the traditional v-neck scrub top with its new scoop neck. By slightly curving the neck line, Skechers offers a modern but professional alternative to solid scrubs. The scoop neck scrub top offers 2 front pockets with stitched down pen holder, back elastic for a little shaping and side vents. For those who are required to wear solids, but need a little dash of fashion, Skechers has the answer. The coordinating low rise drawstring pant is soft, modern, comfortable and functional. With a moderate flare, it offers an adjustable twill tape drawstring and an elastic waist. Similar to the unisex pant, it offers a lot of pockets: side cargo pocket with scissor pocket, 2 slash pockets, novelty front coin pocket with button flap and 2 back pockets with button flap.

Are you ready for a change that you can afford? Try on Skechers for an upgraded but flattering look and fit.Skechers Scrubs
