    Cheap scrubs
    One day, I would like to look my friend in a local hospital. I’m not alone, but with my friends, many friends. So because of our noise disturb the medical patient, the security wish us silent.
    While we are sitting down in the park, a friend ask us he tell why the nurses, their uniforms is different each other and different in work hours. So how many uniform they have? Another friend then stands up and said, if they have many different uniforms, it means they spent much money to buy it. That’s why their have high salary. I cut the speaking automatically then said, they buy the uniforms in big scale. I ever heard that they buy it through internet. The prices are very competitive but the online store is lower.
    To improve my statement, a friend comes to a nurse and ask her that where they buy the uniform. In a moment, a nurse was surprised but later she answered that she didn’t know exactly but she also heard that their management buy from the online store, or or is that name. The store is leading on the medical uniform supplied, the nurse said. She continues their uniform design is great I am being cute by this uniform. My friends also fell like me. Our doctors also like the uniform because of simple, soft and air circulation.
    When we back home, I browse in internet, to find where the Cheap Scrubs. The nurse is right. I have to see before believe. The store sell medical product, especially uniforms. The first time I have to find is price. I was surprise that the price average is lower then $ 10 USD. The second one is the design. The nurse is also right.
    My sister is a Special Education teacher. She teaches little kids with special needs. And in her school, all Special Education teachers, shadow teachers as well as pre-school teachers are required to wear scrubs. They can wear different colors of scrubs and even different designs. I asked my sister why they would wear scrubs. I often see this get up being worn by nursing students and other medical students, nursing aides in hospitals, some nurses, and even doctors especially when they are going to the operating room. I also see this being worn by doctors in television shows.
    My sister told me that scrubs are being used by teachers like her to avoid uniforms with buttons. There are times when a kid throws a tantrum and he or she might rip a button from a teacher’s uniform. You know little kids, they think colorful objects are candies so they might swallow it or worse, put it inside their noses or ears. So a scrub is a perfect uniform for teachers like my sister.
    My sister had a hard time looking for a scrub set before. Had we known about, we wouldn’t have had a hard time looking for scrub suits. You might be looking for scrub sets as well.
