Ask a Travel Nurse Question:
Came across your site today and find it to be a most excellent resource. I am researching Travel Nursing options so I can begin my next career phase. The hospital I work for requires RNs to wear navy blue scrubs. Does a Traveler have to buy new scrubs with each assignment?
Ask a Travel Nurse Answer:
Unfortunately, buying the uniforms that the facilities require is part of Travel Nursing. However, I’ve worked in probably seven different hospitals in the past two years and ALL of them had their nursing staff wearing navy blue scrubs. While it may be more of a universal color here on the west coast, hopefully the east coast will also catch up and “universalize” so that navy blue may be the last color you have to buy.
