The nursing uniform started out as a simple white dress with white hose and white shoes. People such as Florence Nightingale were the first that wore this or something like it. As time went on you would see more and more variations to what the original uniform would look like. But for many decades the uniform of the nurse was the whites. The biggest change that first happened was the occasional white pants that would replace the skirt or dress. This was the beginning of the evolution in style.
The nursing uniform then started to convert from white top to other colors but the same streamlined style. Nurses who wanted a bit of variety started to wear clothes that were a bit different. The nursing uniform soon went from just a change in the top to a change to a top that was close in resemblance to the scrub top. In many cases these scrubs are better filling and more form fitting but they are still very different in terms of color scheme and patterns.
For those who might be looking for a nursing uniform you can find them in many locations. You can usually buy uniforms right from the hospital if you work for one but you can also find them in a number of stores both online and brick and mortar. They now have evolved into a very different type of uniform but still recognizable. Many women still wear a tailored fitting white top and pants set and for the most part not move to the newer styles. If you like this style you will probably want to look for these in uniform stores.
The majority though of nurses, both men and women, is the scrub or the scrub top/white pant uniform that some opt for. Not all organizations will allow you to wear scrubs as a nurse so make sure you know what is acceptable before you go out to get yours. For many in the profession, wearing the nursing uniform is a matter of pride. You might choose to wear any of the styles that are available but to the public you are still one in a profession that earns public trust and people look at you as an important and trusted figure during a difficult of stressful time in their lives.
