Are you starting 2012 with a new nursing job? If you are, Marcus Uniforms can help outfit you with the perfect nursing scrubs. Whether you are required to wear solid scrubs or are able to wear any prints or styles you like, we have what you need.

Scrub pants are available from trusted brands like Cherokee Workwear, White Swan Fundamentals and Dickies in full size runs including petite pants and tall pants. We also carry newer brands like Fusion, E.Libby and Scrub Works for the more fashion conscious nurse and we've recently added soft Jockey Scrubs to our inventory. Color matched solid scrub tops are available from all of these brands, but please remember that colors may not match if you order tops and bottoms from two different brands.

We have print tops in many different styles that can match pants you already own or brand new scrub pants you just purchased. At Marcus Uniforms, we want our customers to look their best so we list all pant colors that coordinate with our print scrubs. And to ensure your scrubs have the best fit, we provide size charts on the same page.

Marcus Uniforms offers free UPS ground shipping within the continental United States on all orders over $100 and a 10% merchandise discount on all orders over $300.

Building Your Own Medical Uniform

Whether you are a veteran nurse or you are still in school, you may have found a new job in the medical industry. Chances are you will have a dress code and will be required to wear a medical uniform at your new job. Find out if you need to wear solid scrub tops and scrub pants or if you can wear print scrubs and start looking for your new scrubs early. If you are a veteran nurse and simply starting a new job, you may be able to wear some of your old scrubs and just want to freshen up your closet a bit. Though the quality of medical scrubs available today had improved dramatically, any garment that withstands constant wear and laundering will show signs of its age over time. Starting off with a fresh, professional look is your best bet. Marcus Uniforms can help you find new scrubs no matter how long you've been in the medical field. Pants that are too long can lead to frayed hems that look unattractive and unprofessional. Most medical personnel are working hard between jobs and family so there is no time for hemming. Marcus Uniforms offers a wide variety of petite lengths (and talls) for the perfect fit and a polished appearance.

If you have few or no restrictions, have fun putting together your own medical uniform. A medical uniform consists of a scrub top, a scrub pant, nursing shoes and sometimes a lab coat, warm-up or watch. You will find Marcus Uniforms very helpful with creating your medical uniform since we list all coordinating colors to our print tops as a service to our customers. If you are just starting in the medical industry, we recommend two or three scrub pants or scrub sets, that you can mix and match with multiple print tops for maximum versatility from your scrubs.

As you start piecing your medical uniform together, remember that Marcus Uniforms offers free UPS ground shipping within the continental United States on all orders over $100 in the United States and a 10% discount on all orders over $300.

Scrub Sets - Finding Scrub Sets

Are you tired of buying mismatched scrub sets at your local uniform supply store because they do not carry a big enough inventory and never have your scrubs in sets? The trick to being able to get matching scrub sets is to buy them online from stores that offers their scrubs in sets or have a large enough inventory to ensure that you get the matching sets you are after.

Nobody ones to go to work looking less than their best, even if they are wearing uniforms, so going to work in mismatched scrubs is simply frustrating.  Sure you can get scrubs that are a close match, but if you decide that close is not good enough Marcus Uniforms can help you get the scrub sets you want at a price you can afford. We offer one of the largest inventories of scrubs on the Internet and offer free shipping on all orders over $99.

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.
