Nurses know and love Dansko for their comfy clogs, but are you aware they make scrubs as well? With quality and style in mind, Dankso has developed a fabulous line of scrubs. I had the chance to road test Dansko’s Greta Scrub Top and Gina Scrub Pants and was thrilled with my trial run. From suturing lacerations to reducing a dislocated finger, my scrubs and I did it all in the ER yesterday. My conclusion- you must own a pair of your own!
Wearing scrubs to work can be straight up boring. Ill-fitted, baggy, and often some sort of drab blue shade, I typically leave my house for work in the morning feeling like I am wearing a paper bag. Oh, the monotony of having such limited options for my workplace wardrobe! But not with Dansko scrubs. Dansko has added a little spice to your average everyday scrub set. With a wide variety of color offerings (the Gwen top comes in 23 tasteful shades), any healthcare worker can find something that fits their style. Avoiding the often outdated and obnoxious looking patterns sold by other scrub makers, Dansko’s patterned offerings are quite cute. I love the flower detail featured on the pocket and sleeve of the scrubs I tested. The subtle design adds a little ‘pop’ to your wardrobe without being over the top.
Sure, they are cute, but what about functional? As NP’s we have a lot to carry around. Supplies for procedures, medical badges, pens, reference cards and those scraps of paper that seem to constantly accumulate take up a lot of room in our pockets. Fortunately, makers of Dansko scrubs designed pants and tops to meet our storage needs. My discovery of the zip-closure mesh pocket-within-a-pocket featured in the Greta scrub top was a pleasant surprise (pictured to the left). Perfect for something you cannot lose, I put my lunch money in this hidden treasure for safe storage. The pen holder pocket feature also saved my day as it prevented the typical fifteen seconds of digging around for a writing utensil everytime I needed to make a quick note.
With all of the fabulous features of Dansko scrubs, were there any negatives? Not really! The scrubs ran a big larger than some other brands I have tried, so you may need to order a size smaller than usual if you run between sizes.

(My pooches also loved my new scrub set as evidenced by them jumping all over me when I arrived home from work. The not-so-little guy closest to me is guilty of eating my Dansko clogs)
