I grew up seeing relatives in medical uniforms. My Mom, who is an only child have cousins who chose to pursue degrees in the medical field. They are now accomplished in each of the field that they wanted. There are several nurses, a few doctors, a couple of dentists and medical technologists. That is why I have always had it in my mind the prestige that is somehow associated with wearing white uniform. That is quite a lot of relatives, but it served my family well because with the varied specialization of the doctors in the family, it comes in handy when their expertise is needed.
During those years though, I never recall seeing any of my relatives donning pink scrubs. Nowadays, I notice that these pink scrubs are worn proudly by female medical practitioners. I must say that the color is flattering. It’s nice to see a nice color in a sea of white uniforms in a medical facility.
Seeing a nurse in uniform in pristine white color however, is still sort of the norm for me. I guess, my mind is just trained to equate that nurses wear white uniforms. It is nice though that these medical practitioners now have a variety of options in as far as their choice of uniform is concerned. With the influx of online portals offering medical uniforms, indeed, the medical field will never have to run out of uniform options.
