Depending on the field of nursing or medicine you are working in you will want to be both frugal and practical in selecting medical uniforms to match the job requirements and the setting. Whether your nursing job includes caring for newborn babies or senior citizens matching your outfit to the type of work you are doing and of course your patients will make the work easier for you and provide a comfortable uniform to perform your nursing duties.
When you shop for nursing scrubs or a medical uniform keep in mind the setting you are working in and who you are caring for. Some nurses work in large hospitals that require lots of movement while others have more administrative tasks to tend to working in a smaller family practice office. For fast pace environments it is important to wear form fitting nursing scrub tops and pants that allow for sufficient airflow and maximum flexibility. Running between floors, through wards and to and from laboratories and pharmacies involves navigating patients and other medical staff as well as equipment that can easily snag a too-loose fitting scrub.
Many contemporary nursing scrubs and medical uniforms mimic athletic wear and it only makes sense that such a pressure-filled job would find a fitting outfit including drawstring pants, athletic footwear and tops with side vents, convenient pockets and elastic waistbands. Nursing is far too important to have to worry about an ill-fitting or poorly designed uniform.
