Scrubs Style: My Top 3 Brands


Nurses work 8 to 12 hour shifts and for any nurse the shift essentials are probably: comfortable, high quality scrubs, good tennis shoes (read: sneakers), compression socks, a water bottle, and a great pen. I’ve purchased and been gifted dozens of scrubs, some that I only wear every now and then and some that I wear every single week- my “staples.”

I only wear 3 brands of scrubs and they are:

  • Cherokee
  • Jaanuu
  • Wear Figs

What I look for when choosing scrubs:

  • very soft, lightweight fabric
  • scrub bottoms that have a drawstring on the waistband
  • bottoms with back pockets, which is where I keep my report sheets
  • thigh pockets for my saline flushes
  • scrub tops with at least one pocket
  • hidden pockets and pockets with zippers are a plus

I’ve listed the style names and/or numbers of my favorites down below, just for y’all 🙂

Infinity Scrubs by Cherokee

The Most Reliable

Hands down my #1! Cherokee scrubs are the scrubs I’ve owned the longest (my very first pair as a nursing student) and the scrubs I wear the most often. They are the first scrub brand, that I could find, that really catered to my needs– a girl with long legs. I’m a 5’10.5 woman with an hourglass shape, Okurrr?! Lol jk!

Wear Figs

The Most Chic

[$20 off your order if you use my affiliate link –>] Honestly, Figs make you feel like an instant bad-ass! I can’t even describe it; if you’ve ever seen someone wearing Figs scrubs in person, then you know exactly what I mean. Figs make you look like “Damn! Who is that and what does she do? Because I want to be that when I grow up!”
