The best nursing scrubs are out there. Here’s how to find them.
What do anesthesiologists, CNAs, doctors, nurses and even nursing students have in common? They all wear scrubs, and just like you, they want to find the pair of scrubs with the perfect combination of fit, style and utility. Carefully choosing your next pair of scrubs could be the difference between being able to focus 100% on your work and your patients, and constantly fidgeting while on the job.

3. Storage. Do you need two pockets? Five? Ten? To some healthcare workers there is no such thing as too many pockets.
