Can scrubs be designed to make you happy?

Why do we love flowers? In the 2005 study “Emotional Impact of Flowers,” researchers found that flowers have an immediate influence on happiness, have a long-term positive effect on moods and also help establish intimate connections.

For 5,000 years, people have cultivated flowers—now scrubs designers are, too. To help you get a stylish dose of smile-inducing fresh petals for your workday, here’s a look at my favorite floral print scrubs from the newest collections.

    These wrap tunics remind me of the nursing (baby) tops that were available when I had my children. No way.

    Seriously, why can’t scrubs have some class to them…many of the prints are so ridiculously ugly. I refuse to wear printed scrubs period for this reason. I will not wear any prints to work that I wouldn’t wear in normal casual clothes. Let’s profession up nursing.

    Any kinda of scrubs with color, patterns, or fun characters are awesome in my book. I work in peds and children, parents, and grand parents love them! It doesn’t even matter though I can go out in public and get compliments. They just brighten peoples day! Scrubs aren’t suppose to be like what you wear out on the street and so on. They are for work…work clothes aren’t not always going to be what you would want to wear on the streets.

    I love scrubs. The “cutesier” the pattern the better. I’m 18, and I’ve worked in fast food for years up until now. I’ve been refined to stinky, recycled, baggy and colorless uniforms for 4 years. It feels liberating to be able to actually pick a wardrobe! I love having my CNA, my job is amazing and so are my scrubs. I think the patients really like the fun prints, it makes us more human to them. The prints give off a sense of individuality that stark, bland uniforms lack. One patient liked my Pooh Bear scrub top so much that I gave it to them the next day. My job is to make people happy, and to care for them. I want to look good, and feel happy so that I can do my job well and please my patients. It’s not just a job, it’s my career and after getting to know the patients they feel like family. :)

    i like the colorful scrubs but some professional association must remain intact with the nursing uniforms all the time.
