A modern nurses uniform should be stylish and up to the job. Is yours? Nurses’ uniforms have come a long way. The very best are made of high performance fabrics and are designed around the demands of the job. But at the same time todays best designs are flattering and comfortable.
In recent years uniform manufacturers have moved away from designs that nowadays are thought to be too clinical. Yes, you want colleagues to respect you but it’s also important to generate confidence in patients who need to view staff as approachable. If you conducted a patient survey what would they say about your uniforms?
When budgets are being squeezed it can be tempting to defer the purchase of uniforms. But if your uniforms are showing signs of wear and tear it can be a false economy. Nurses who feel positive about their appearance are likely to deliver a better service and will build a batter rapport with patients. Few people outside the profession really appreciate how demanding nursing jobs are, in all their diversity. Frayed cuffs, fasteners that don’t work or stains that won’t come out, mean uniforms can end up looking shabby.
