Now Showing: Movie-Inspired Scrubs

23 May

After a long day of tending to patients, catching a flick with your friends and family is the perfect way to unwind.  The summer season is known for its big film releases, so we’ve created a few nursing outfits using our favorite new and upcoming movies as inspiration.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
(in theaters now)

Swing into nursing action for The Amazing Spiderman sequel. Spidey’s superhero outfit is the iconic red and blue spandex suit. We say skip the spandex and pair Tooniform’s Spiderman Print Top with Carhartt’s Royal Blue Drawstring Pant. Don’t forget your own equipment to save lives—a Littmann Select Stethoscope and Sanita’s Non-Skid Frisco Shoes. Sorry Spider-Man, you got nothin’ on our heroic nurses.

Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return
(in theaters now)

Dorothy’s back in Oz in this animated film based on L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Take a look at White Cross’ A-Line Scrub Dress; it’s a close match to Dorothy’s trademark blue dress. Also, her brown boots in the cartoon inspired us to feature The Gwenore Clog by Sanita. Walk through the magical lands of Oz with this Daisy Deluxe Tote Bag. If you’re nostalgic for the original film, buy a pair of your own ruby red clogs here. Sorry, cute dog not included!

Maleficent
(in theaters 5/30)

Based on the 1959 Disney Movie, Sleeping Beauty, this new Disney film tells the story from the villain’s point of view, Maleficent. Taking aspects from both the 1959 and 2014 versions of Maleficent, we first chose allheart’s 3-Pocket Top and unisex scrub pant in a pitch black color. Purple accents are a great homage to the original evil fairy godmother, like Fundamentals’ Long Sleeve Underscrub. Pop on some bright-red lipstick and your Maleficent-inspired outfit is complete.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
(in theaters 8/8)

Rebooted from the cheesy (but fun!) 90’s television show and movies, director Michael Bay takes on these iconic characters in his own version. Our ninja turtle outfit uses assistance from our reptilian friends, IguanaMed. Their Treeline Green Scrub Set is comfortable for a full of day of battling medical maladies. No TMNT outfit is finished without a colored tie-back scrub hat from allheart. Represent Raphael in red, Leonardo in blue, or Donatello in purple. Convince a few fellow nurses to dress up with you, and you’ll have convenient Halloween costumes appropriate for the office.

Bonus! 90’s April O’Neil Inspired Gear

Meet April O’Neil: a hard-hitting reporter for Channel 6 news and loyal friend to the ninja turtles. As fans of the original television series, we throw back to April’s original style. Adar’s Universal Basics Scrub Set in “Banana” is a close match to her bright yellow jumpsuit. Any nurse/reporter also needs a white Prestige Medical Glow Watch and matching Dawg’s Slip-Resistant Shoe. Now you’re ready for any assignment that comes your way!

Celebrate National Veterinary Nursing Awareness Month

20 May

We take this time to recognize those who care for our furry friends—veterinarians. Your medical expertise and dedication allows our pets to live longer and healthier lives.  As this month highlights the importance of your devotion to animals, we are featuring a great selection of vet-themed scrubs and accessories just for you. Be comfortable and stylish while you work!

First up is Scrub H.Q.’s Round Neck Top in the “Happy Tails For You” Print. Brightly-colored cartoon dogs are splashed across the front of this top as well as phrases such as “Woof!”, “Bow Wow”, and “Grrr!”.  The notched neckline and back elastic yields a feminine touch to the design.

Searching for a demure style instead? More of a cat fan? We recommend Cherokee’s V-Neck Scrub Top from their Runway collection. Their “Love Cats” top has an artistic placement print of a woman and her cat. The pink piping along the neckline and the lovely heart shapes add a pop of color to the piece. Made of 100% cotton,  this breathable fabric is ideal for the upcoming summer days.

It’s National Nurse Practitioners Week

13 Nov

nurse practictionerThis week we salute nurse practitioners! As licensed, expert clinicians, nurse practitioners have an increasingly vital role to play in our health system.

With a health care provider shortage at the top of the national agenda, nurse care practitioners are prepared to provide high-quality, cost-effective, comprehensive, patient-centered care to patients across the country. Already, more than 916 million visits are made to Nurse Practitioners every year.

National Nurse Practitioner Week, November 10-16, 2013, is a time to celebrate the more than 171,000 licensed nurse practitioners in the United States. NP’s provide primary, acute and specialty health care services and partner with their patients, guiding them to make educated health care decisions and healthy lifestyle choices.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

23 Sep
Breast Cancer Awareness pink ribbon print scrub top

This pretty, playful, pink-ribbon print scrub top comes from the Koi Happiness collection.

Most of us are aware of Breast Cancer. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the National Breast Cancer Foundation reminds women they should have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages, and that everyone should encourage women they know to create such a plan.

You can learn how to create an early detection plan, get more information about the disease and treatment, or learn about hosting a fundraiser to provide mammograms to women in need at the Foundation’s website.

You can help promote awareness by wearing your pink ribbon scrubs and accessories during the month of October. There are many flattering and eye-catching items included in allheart’s huge selection. Wearing them shows your support for the cause and gives you a way to open a discussion about Breast Cancer Awareness with your patients and co-workers.

See some of our favorite scrubs and accessories with a Breast Cancer Awareness theme on Pinterest.
