Medical uniforms and specifically nurses’ uniforms have evolved through the years, but have emerged as a very important part of the personality of the nurse. The historical starched white uniform signified a solemn discipline, compassion and caring. It was called called a “fever proof uniform” and covered almost the entire body of the nurse. Interestingly, however, the nurse never wore gloves or mask. The 1840’s saw new nursing uniforms which depicted the patriarchal constraints within which nurses worked and dressed. In fact, the uniform signified the dress of a female servant of the time. Fast forward to today. How times have changed. The new uniforms worn by nurses are called scrubs, offer bright colors, designs, encouraging words and a whole host of pant styles to fit all shapes, sizes and personalities.
