I’m a Student Nurse, What Scrubs Should I Buy?

Studying to become a nurse is an exciting time, plus it likely means you’re about to be purchasing your very first set of nursing scrubs! We also know that as a student nurse, you’re super busy and don’t have time to spend stressing about which set you should get. 

First, you should check whether your university or future placement opportunity has any colour requirements. We have a huge range of colours so hopefully, even if your university does have certain regulations, we’ve still got you covered! Most likely if there are any rules it will mean your scrubs have to be black, navy or blue which is why we have 3 different shades of blue plus back, navy, and grey in our core range. Or, if you aren’t restricted to certain colours we always have fun new limited edition colours that will help you to show off your personality while being hard at work! 

When it comes to the perfect style, it’s really up to you! Most universities and workplaces won’t have any strict rules according to style but it’s always worth double-checking! We have a huge range of styles for both men and women depending on what you prefer! 

If you like to be as comfortable as possible or prefer a sporty look we recommend either our Lucy Jogger Scrub Pants for women or our Howard Jogger Scrub Pants for men! If you prefer a more tailored look we would recommend for women our Clarissa Skinny Leg Scrub pants or our Edith Straight Leg Scrub Pants and for men our Victor Scrub Pants.  

For tops, once again it depends on fit and preference. We have a crew neck option and multiple V-neck options in both our men's and women's ranges, plus we have a collared option for men. Take a look through our women’s scrub tops here and our men’s scrub tops here. Hopefully, you’ll find the perfect nursing scrub top for you!

If you want to make your new favourite student nursing scrubs, even more, your own we also offer embroidery on all of our scrub tops, take a look through our options and read up on our scrub embroidery service on all of our shirt product pages.


Hopefully, we’ve been able to help take some of the stress out of buying your very own pair of new nursing scrubs! Happy shopping!
