Would Florence Nightingale approve of today’s nursing scrubs?


National Nursing Week is May 11 – 17 and Florence Nightingale’s birthday is on May 12

In 1860, Nightingale laid the foundation of professional nursing with the establishment of her nursing school at St Thomas’ Hospital in London. It was the first secular nursing school in the world, now part of King’s College London. The Nightingale Pledge taken by new nurses was named in her honour, and the annual International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world on her birthday.

Today, any medical uniform consisting of a short-sleeve shirt and pants is known as “scrubs”. Nearly all patient care personnel at hospitals wear some form of scrubs while on duty, as do some staffers in doctor, dental, and veterinary offices.

Today’s Scrubs are very fashionable, come in many styles, colors and prints.  They are made with fabric that is very flexible and comfortable. Today’s Nurse goes to work feeling professional, comfortable and ready to perform their duties. 

Scrubs for Them thinks Florence Nightingale would be amazed at the changes in medical uniforms but would definitely approve.  Scrubs for Them will be introducing the next generation of uniforms in May.  Scrubs with “Certainty” – Antimicrobial Technology providing long lasting fabric protection against unwanted bacteria https://youtu.be/ooC4oKDCReg and coming soon “Certainty Plus”.
