I'm new here Julie....so here's a new post to get people talking - we can all relate to this :)

I recently graduated from the University of Scranton with my nursing degree! I'm kinda a clothes horse - I love pricey duds, impractical shoes and tons of jewelry - not great for a career in nursing. My college scrubs were inexpensive and used just to get me by, but now I'm looking for some really good quality nursing scrubs. I've been searching all over for sites with great values. I found a site - www.scrubs-max.com - that seems to have some great prints and cheap prices. Has anyone ever bought from them before? How is the quality of their medical scrubs?? Do you have any advice on places to shop?

You started so well. But why am I getting the impression you are here just to advertise?

Prove me wrong!! :aetsch:

I like gouldsdiscountmedical.com- mostly because I have actually been in their store and so know what the quality of their stuff is like...and up here in Canada they end up being more unique because no one else has them.

Well I think we have given some balance giving three other examples of online stores.

I have bought from All Heart (http://www.allheart.com) good range of products (we don't wear scrubs in Australia except ED and OP) but they are expensive with their postage (I can spend more of postage than the products). I have also bought from other one, can't remember its name but also expensive.

If you are going to shop online, stick to brands you have tried or have heard about. A lot of the stores also have shops you can walk into, go in and try things on, then go and buy them cheaper on the internet.

Good hunting.

PJ, I checked out allheart.com. They really have a nice selection of uniforms. Just curious, what type of uniforms do you wear when you are working on general medical floor? I don't scrubs either. Psych nurses wear street clothes, but I have a few pairs of scrubs just in case I get pulled to a medical unit. God help those patients :laugh:

If doing psych we generally wear street cloths, but not jeans.
On med/surg as students (our uni only) we wear navy pants, black shoes and a navy or white polo shirt (with logo).
When I work I wear same pants but with navy nursing polo shirt (quick dry material which breaths well, and drys very quick, but is still warmish)
Nurses wear provided uniforms (you get it when you start and wash yourself) navy pants, black shoes, and company button shirt/blouse (this is usually in blue, but can also be white with company logos all over it). However I have seen one hospital were nurses wear street cloths (it doesn't look very professional)

Some places still have scrubs in the ED but they are always (I think) navy and cleaned by the hospital.

I really like scrubmed (http://www.scrubmed.com/). They are definitely not the cheapest out there, but really good quality and some of the nicest designs out there. They're local for me, and I tend to go in (especially for their 2x/year sale where you can get really good deals). I particularly like the v-neck 3 pocket shirts and the double leg pocket pants. Plus, because they do make their own scrubs you can custom order.

I prefer http://www.marcusuniforms.com They carry most of the popular scrub brands, so you know what kind of quality you are getting. They are priced really well too.

It is the hidden prices which really get you. I have bought things from various companies through the internet. Ussally the postage is close or more than what the item cost. I now get a quote on postage before confirming the order.

No one posts cheaper than Amazon though!

I am a retired nurse due to an accident with a girl on a cell phone, t-boning my car. I am now disabled and have started an online store http://mamasuescloset.com
Since I can't do the job I love anymore, I feel that i can offer something to those who can.

Back on topic. I am on my second last placement, this time with pediatrics. The nurses on the ward all wear scrubs, and I love the look! All different basic colours (pink, blues, navy, greens) They all have the logo of the hospital on the pocket and say NURSE. It looks good! No one else (other than nurses) wears scrubs in the hospital except doctors in the OT.

Since you just graduated, becareful not to get to carried away on getting a huge scrub wardrobe. When get offered a nursing job, find out the dress code because some hospitals and health centers have strict dress codes on their medical uniforms and nursing scrubs (http://shop.advanceweb.com). I would hate to see you spend too much money on scrubs that you can't wear.

NO scrubs, here. Tactical or EMS pants from 5.11 and t-shirts, usually from my flight job.

I never had to pay the same amount for my scrubs as shipping I always go online to see if there is any promo for free shipping...I see thathttp://www.uniformadvantage.com always has good rates on shipping so I just wait until then.....I also like their design on their scrubs tops....

I really like Marcus Uniforms (http://www.marcusuniforms.com). I find the cutest scrubs there and they aren't too pricy either. They also often have sales on scrubs that make them a great deal. When you practically live in your scrubs it is nice to have options. I have never shopped at the place you talked about....so I don't know anything about them

Summary: Nursing and medical assisting students at schools like AmeriTech college in Utah have had limited fashion options in the past. They used to wear plain dull scrubs that were boring, but now they have many more options. Brands like Cherokee Uniforms, Urbane, Jasco by allheart, Dickies and MOBB offer scubs in a variety of colors, patterns and designs. Nursing and medical assisting students can now come to class and clinicals wearing outfits that express their personality.
Fashion is a way to express yourself in college, but that can be a difficult task for Utah’s AmeriTech nursing and medical assisting students. Wearing plain blue scrubs every day can get old fast. Fortunately the days of dull outfits are over for AmeriTech students as scrub companies offer a greater variety.
1. Cherokee Uniforms
Cherokee Uniforms is an affordable brand that offers colors, patterns graphics and designs unique to the medical world. This allows Utah nursing and medical assisting students to come to class in a set of scrubs that shows a little bit of their personality.

2. Jasco
Jasco by allheart is America’s Medical Superstore. They have a variety colorful patterns and designs. They are currently doing a promotion where you can get $19 off your purchase of $159 or more.

3. Urbane
Urbane is a favorite among nursing and medical assisting students because they are made out of a stretch material. This means they are more comfortable, and often times more flattering. They offer two lines: The Urbane and Urbane Sport.

4. Dickies
Dickies has been catering to nursing and medical assisting students since 1922. Their line has expanded to include multiple colors patterns and feminine designs. Their tops are unique as they offer the zip down scrub tunic and mock wrap scrub top.

5. MOBB
Nursing and medical assisting students love MOBB scrubs because they have multiple pockets on both the top and bottoms of their uniforms. They offer multiple flattering designs, patterns and colors.

There are nice prints and great designs out there, but there are hospitals that strictly require wearing a "uniform." If you are working as a private nurse, it is just fine to have your own say on what kind of scrub you wear.

I found a list of 10 cheap scrub sets (http://www.hospitalcareers.com/blog/cheap-scrub-sets-for-medical-professionals/) that look pretty good for the money that you may find interesting.

Now days, most of medical schools and colleges have made it compulsory to wear scrubs. Last week, my nephew, a medical student, did purchased figs scrubs (https://www.wearfigs.com/) online. He got them in a discounted deal and is very happy with the quality too.
