When you work in the medical field, you will likely have to wear scrubs. These are pants and shirts that have pockets so that you can carry the important things needed during the day to work with patients. Scrubs also give a uniform appearance to the office staff and the nurses who work in the medical office or hospital. They give a professional appearance and can sometimes make patients feel comfortable around doctors and nurses.
Cheap scrubs are best if you quickly need clothing to wear to work or if you don't have a lot of money to spend. You can find scrubs that aren't expensive by looking online, at yard sales or at businesses that are getting rid of older designs and getting new ones in the store. However, if you have the money to get expensive scrubs, it's often best as these will be a little more comfortable since they are made with a better material. The cheaper scrubs are often made with materials that attract lint and don't come clean as easily as those that are made with a material of a higher quality. You will also have better movement while working with patients as some of the less expensive scrubs are stiff.
Cheaper scrubs often have a basic design compared to some of the more expensive ones that are a little more trendy. If the employer doesn't mind a simple look, then going cheaper is an option. However, if you work in an environment where you know employers are looking at the staff and where the other workers have better clothing, then you might want to spring for a few expensive scrubs so that you'll blend in and feel confident around others.
The design of cheaper scrubs often features a v-neck or a neck that has a square design. You can often wear a shirt underneath the scrub top, especially in the winter, so that you're comfortable. As long as the design of the neck isn't revealing, then it really doesn't matter in most places of employment about the way the neck looks. You do want to find something that has enough support so that you don't have to worry about tearing while working with patients.
