Best Nursing Scrubs: 5 Tips for Finding Them

Best Nursing Scrubs

We know how demanding life as a nurse can be. Your workday may involve bathing patients, performing lifesaving techniques and being exposed to various body fluids. You work long shifts and have to spend hours on your feet. For these reasons, you need nursing scrubs that work with you

Your scrubs must be durable, professional, easy to care for, breathable and comfortable. Nurse scrubs should also be resistant to wrinkles and stains. Use the tips below to find out the essential characteristics of a great pair of scrubs. Then, choose the best scrubs for you at Scrubs IQ

Nurse Scrubs Need To Be Machine Washable

After work, you need to rest. Therefore, the best scrubs for nurses do not require ironing and are easy to care for.

As a nurse, your days likely consist of:

  • Shifts that last from 10 to 12 hours.
  • Back-to-back appointments.
  • Continuously caring for patients.
  • Standing for long periods of time.
  • Paperwork, paperwork and more paperwork.

With this busy schedule, the last thing you want to worry about is handwashing or dry cleaning your medical nursing scrubs. Therefore, the medical apparel you select must be machine washable.

Healthcare Professionals Need Comfortable Scrubs

It may be tempting to choose snug-fitting scrubs that will make you look fashionable. However, working in nursing scrubs that are too tight can make moving around difficult. You may also feel extremely uncomfortable. When you are looking for a set of scrubs with a comfortable fit, material matters

Feeling like you need to scratch all the time can make any workday unbearable. As a nurse, you are busy caring for others, which means you have no time to scratch. Therefore, the nursing scrubs you choose must consist of itch-free fabrics.

To find balance, the nursing scrubs you pick need to fit well and offer flexibility. To accomplish this, your scrubs must be the appropriate length and made with itch-free, non-restrictive fabric/fabric blends. Some of the most comfortable Australian scrubs are made with nylon and spandex Knit.
