The layers: Underscrub t-shirt + Scrub top

When to wear them: If you’re in a fast-paced environment like the ER where a jacket may be too bulky, but you need that lightweight layer.

Uniform tip: Check with your color code, but a white underscrub is almost always allowed.

The layers: Scrub top + Scrub jacket

When to wear them: If you’re sometimes cold but tend to warm-up and like some extra pocket space. Black is a versatile color choice for your scrub jacket if you're not restricted to a uniform color.

Uniform tip: When adding a scrub jacket to your uniform, make sure you buy one from both same collection and brand as your scrub set to ensure perfectly-matching colors.

Choose a jacket that is the same brand and collection as your favorite scrub top, that way the color will match exactly.
