Default Trendy Scrubs

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!!

I like doing business with - www.scrubsgallery.comThey have great products and they support nursing education by offering nursing scholarships. I also hope you're not an advertiser.

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 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

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. 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!
