Last month my girlfriend finally finished a two year technical school program so that she can be a medical assistant. They had their graduation and she invited me to come, since her mother lives so far away and couldn’t make it up here for the ceremony. I was delighted to go – it was not boring at all. I found it rather inspiring to see all the young people – and a few older ones, as well all lined up in graduation robes and hats to get their diplomas. It really was an honor to be invited.
One thing I never realized is that the people in the doctors offices have to buy their own scrubs, lab coats and nursing uniforms. I don’t know why, but I guess I always assumed that the doctor’s office and hospitals provided those for the employees. Most of the other industries that I know of that require employees to wear uniforms provide them to the employees. But I guess with the medical industry they cannot afford to provide uniforms for everyone. Just keeping up with a huge wardrobe in all those different sizes would be a nightmare.
My girlfriend says that she will buy medical scrubs online to not only save money but to get some new colors, prints and styles that are not easily found in the local uniform stores.
Check out blueskyscrubs.com if you want to see a great selection of scrubs at very good prices. This is where my girlfriend says she shops and finds some pretty good selections and decent prices that fit into her budget.No Comments »
