Why our scrubs are great for nurses
We have a range of nursing scrubs perfectly designed specifically with nurses in mind. Scrub Lab scrubs were designed so that no matter how long your shift is or what patients you have each day. With comfort, design, and movability at the forefront of our design, our scrubs are perfect for all of the bending, walking, moving, stretching and lifting you might have to do.
What scrubs are right for you
We have a huge range of styles available for our nurse's scrubs. You will always be able to find your ideal scrub style at Scrub Lab, with over 14 unique pieces to choose from for your nursing uniform. The best way to find your perfect style is to figure out which style of pants/shirt you tend to find most comfortable, keeping in mind what would be best and most convenient for your specific work day or night.
- If you tend to be more comfortable in a crew neck style shirt rather than a v-neck, we recommend our Fiona scrub shirt for women or our Henry scrub shirt for men.
- If you work long night shifts where you have a nap break at some point, jogger-style nurse pants would likely be best for those shifts, so we would recommend either our Lucy jogger scrub pants or our Howard jogger scrub pants.
Materials & Styles
We understand how important both material and style are for nurses when picking their nursing scrubs. With a huge collection made up of unique styles for men and women, including maternity options (four men's nursing scrub shirts, two men's nursing scrub pants, four women’s nursing scrub tops, and four women's nursing scrub bottoms), you can be sure you’ll find a style for you. With all of these options, no matter what style you find most comfortable whether it's a jogger style, a straight leg, a skinny leg, a crew neck, or a v-neck, we have options for you. We also have options depending on the number of pockets you need in your day.
In addition to creating many style options perfect for every nurse, we use our specialised fabric called SLTech™. SLTech™ has been engineered from the finest materials available to look and feel like the technical activewear everybody loves. Our fabric has multiple benefits that make it perfect for nurses, including;
- Four-way stretch, meaning it will stretch with your movements and won’t restrict you from comfortably performing your daily tasks
- Ultra-soft feel so that when you’re at work, especially if you have long overnight shifts, you can still feel comfortable.
- Wrinkle resistance which means you don’t have to spend time ironing before your shifts or worrying about looking unpresentable at work.
- Antimicrobial finish so that any microbes you pick up at work are destroyed instantly and will not linger on the fabric of your scrubs.
As a nurse, you’re often surrounded by microbes and other bacteria, so it's essential to be as protected as possible, not only for yourself but to ensure you don’t bring any germs home with you. In addition to our SLTech™ fabric, our scrubs are treated with our SILVADUR™ antimicrobial coating technology, which helps fight off and destroy any microbes that come near your nursing uniform. SILVADUR™ protects the fibres and fabrics of your scrubs so that they last longer, inhibits the growth of microorganisms within your scrubs’ material, and also provides anti-odour protection.
Have a long shift?
Scrub Lab has got you covered
We understand that as a nurse, it's not uncommon for you to have extremely long and often even overnight shifts. Our nurses' scrubs are designed with this in mind to ensure they’re as perfectly suited to nurses as possible.
When you’re working a long shift, the last thing you want is to wake up in the morning and have to put on an uncomfortable uniform before heading to work and spending the day feeling stiff and awkward in your scrubs. Particularly for nurses, who often spend their days having to move around helping patients, movability and flexibility are vital. This is why our scrubs for nurses were designed with our ultra soft and extra stretchy SLTech™ fabric.
In addition to comfort, things like anti-odour and anti-wrinkle technology can come in handy on a long shift. Especially on shifts where you need to sneak in a nap on your break before getting back to work and having to look (and smell) as good as new. The good news is that anti-odour and anti-wrinkle are two of the excellent features of our SLTech™ fabric, meaning all of Scrub Labs' scrubs are designed with this in mind.
Other products for nurses
In addition to our huge range of nursing scrubs, we also sell other nursing uniform products, including under scrubs, jackets, vests and compression socks.
Our Scrub Lab compression socks are exceptionally comfortable as they are made from an ultra soft material with extra heel and toe padding. They are perfect for nurses to wear during their long shifts, day or night, since they’re a light 15 MMHG compression. They are available in 3 limited edition fun coloured and patterned designs, perfect for a funky sock lover.
Comfort is always key, even when you’re working.
Our Lucy Jogger Pant scrubs are the perfect women's scrub pants for nurses and anyone who needs them. We designed these scrub pants with comfort, style, and versatility in mind. When creating all of our designs, we wanted to make the most comfortable scrubs in Australia. For nurses who work long shifts and are working overnight, we created a pant that genuinely feels like loungewear without looking like it! The Lucy Jogger scrubs are classic jogger-style scrub pants with a comfortable slim fit and elastic waistband with an adjustable drawstring and cuffed ankles. If you wear scrubs regularly, you will understand the importance of having pockets, and the Lucy Jogger features seven functional pockets.
All of our scrubs are made with our SLTech fabric. SLTech fabric is the best scrub fabric available. It features a four-way stretch, which means movement is always easy when your wearing Scrub Lab. Our fabric is ultra soft so that you don't have to worry about any itchiness or discomfort while you spend your day working. Another excellent feature of our SLTech fabric is the antimicrobial finish, which destroys microbes immediately upon contact. Also, the SLTech fabric is wrinkle-resistant, and this means that you don't have to waste any mornings or nights ironing your uniform before heading to work. With Scrub Lab, you will always look put together and ready to take on a long day (or night) of hard work!
Our Lucy Jogger Scrub Pants are the most comfortable scrub pants in Australia, and we want everyone to be able to experience that comfort. The Lucy Jogger Pant is available in our three core colours (black, navy, and ceil blue) and all of our limited edition colours so that there is always a colour that works for you! At Scrub Lab, we prioritise inclusivity, and we offer our Lucy Jogger Pant in sizes XXS all the way through to 4XL. Plus, we have three different length inseam options for every size (petite, regular, & tall). For more information on sizing and length options, take a look at our size guide.
While our Lucy Joggers are designed for women, if you’re looking for a jogger scrub pant for a masculine fit alternative, take a look at our Howard Jogger Scrub Pants which are extremely similar to our Lucy Jogger Pants. Also, if you’re looking for maternity scrubs in Australia, we have our Lucy Jogger pants available as our Lucy Maternity Jogger Scrub Pants which are perfect for pregnant women in their 2nd or 3rd trimesters.
