Nursing Uniforms...

~ Posted on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 8:22 AM ~

When I was young, I have never joined any extracurricular societies or clubs in schools that requires its members to wear special uniforms. Why? I came from an average income family, my mum is a SAHM and our family of 4 (dad, mum, my elder brother and myself) depended on dad's income (he was an electrician then) to survive. So, to fork out money to buy the uniforms and shoes and all are considered unneccessary. I have steered clear of clubs and societies like this even when I went to high school.

But that does not mean I have a negative perception towards uniforms or anyone wearing it in their profession. My dad, though he was an electrician, wears a special uniform provided by his company and everytime I see him in that uniform, I can't help but feel a sense of pride that he's special and different from other blue-collared working class people.

I can also recalled my first encounter with people in uniform (other than my dad) was the nurses in my primary school. Back then, those nurses wore white dresses with a small little cap on their head. Those uniforms don't look like cheap nursing uniform to me back then.

Of course nowadays, with all the technology to mass produce and the creativity of people to design more varieties of uniforms (be it material or color), we can easily find uniforms everywhere. Even small businesses are resorting to having their own company uniforms as a sense of company identity and to look more professional.

Look at this Printed top uniform for instance. Would you have thought it is a nursing uniform? It looks pretty cool and pretty to me!

What are your thoughts about uniforms (be it to wear at school or at work)?

Is it necessary and important?
