Nurses Trading Drab for Fab
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
What comes to mind when you think of the word scrubs? A one-size-one-style-fits-all blue utilitarian outfit donned by the healthcare world. One company has decided to breathe some life and fashion into the work outfits of millions of healthcare professionals.
After researching for a year and hosting focus groups that
asked real nurses across the country what they wanted in the world of fashion
scrubs, Work ‘N Gear has released their line of trendy medical wear called
Scrubology. According to Boston.com, “Scrubology attempts to fill a niche by
offering its bright prints and tailored fits.” For some nurses and other
medical personnel, this is just what the doctored ordered. Jill Caulfield, a
nurse who has rejected the freebie scrubs from her hospital explains, “The
hospital scrubs are always too big or too small. I like having one that fits my
body, and you can pick the color you want that goes with your personality. It
makes it more fun,’’ she said. “I want to feel comfortable with what I have on
for 12 hours straight.’’ Work ‘N Gear is providing an innovative and creative
alternative to the traditional medicalwear. It’s gratifying to see a company
address the needs of an important population such as nurses and other medical
providers. What a difference a break away from the ordinary, such as a change
in clothing, can make on your entire attitude and operation at work.
Rue Education has brought that same innovative idea to nurse
education. They have listened to what medical professionals need when making
the critical and life-changing decision to pursue an advanced education. You no
longer have to make your life schedule work around your school schedule. There
are a variety of options that are refreshingly flexible for a busy adult learner
that is trying to balance work and family with advancing their education. Rue
education addresses this need with their learning systems designed specifically
for medical professionals that need an educational path that works flexibly.
Nearly 400,000 nurses have found out why, see for yourself!
