I am positive that you have heard about scrubs before and that you have seen them before either in real life or on TV. To put it in a few simple words, nursing scrubs are nothing else than comfortable attire that was designed with health care professionals in mind. Why are scrubs needed? They are needed so that the patients can easily recognize who is a doctor, who is a nurse, and who is a patient. Being able to identify doctors and nurses is especially helpful in crowded hospitals and surgeries where one can feel so confused and lost.
Scrubs for doctors have undergone radical changes over the last couple of decades. I am not sure how much you remember how nurses and doctors used to look in the 70’s or 80’s, but I can tell you that their scrubs for sure weren’t as fashionable as those scrubs that doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals were these days. Being a nurse or a caretaker is a lot more enjoyable these days as those who chose this particular career path have a wide range of colorful scrubs to choose from for any day of the week. Nurses can even wear blue or purple scrubs depending on their mood as well as their preferences.
