Covert Operation: Camo Scrubs Hit the Scene

I witnessed an atrocity the other day. As I was mindlessly browsing the internet with that post-night shift brain fog for something blog-related, I can’t recall exactly what, a disturbing photo caught my eye. Startled, the night-shift brain fog rolled away, and my thoughts and consequent judgements suddenly became oh-so-clear. A nurse proudly clad in camouflage for a scrub magazine photo graced my computer screen.

Living in the south, I don’t have anything against camo. In fact, in middle school I was known to frequent Halloween parties dressed as a member of the military (no need to clarify, I was not part of the cool crowd). Even today, given the right situation, I would proudly throw on a camo jacket, pants, or hat. The key words to my position being right situation. 

If you ask me, the right situations for donning camo include duck or deer season, fighting a war or participating in other military related exercises, and as the very occasional trendy accent piece to an otherwise non-outdoorsy outfit. While I don’t have a penchant for camo scrubs, it seems other healthcare providers must embrace the stealthy work wear as uniform companies are peddling camo this year. Yes, if you are an outdoor aficionado you can now show up for work camouflage clad.

For those nurses, nurse practitioners, and physicians who want to make a statement at on the job, here are some options for your camo themed work wardrobe.

If I were a supporter of the camo scrub craze, this top would be my pick. Tafford’s scrub set comes in green camo with pink accents, or blue camo with lime green lining. The pink and green accents provide a bit of contrast to the more masculine camo design of Tafford’s camo scrub set.
