What a draaaaaaag–but how to make it fun? How to put a smile on your frowny impatient patients who just want to get the heck outta the hospital?
The answer? FUN SCRUBS. Fun scrubs? What does that even mean? Well, according to a couple different studies, what you wear to work can affect not only who you work with (for you healthcare workers, that means your fellow staff and patients), but also yourself.
Let me explain by taking you on a visual tour of a wholeee newww woooorrrlllddd of my top 20 picks for super Fun Scrubs.

5. Scrub HQ 4804 Women’s Mock Wrap Scrub Top

10. Tooniforms 6885V Women’s Mock Wrap Scrub Top
Don’t be a square! Or be a square. Whatever you want, the choice is yours.

14. Tooniforms 6767CB Women’s Cotton Scoop Neck Scrub Top
I recently re-watched Disney’s Bambi and it was like the saddest thing ever (well, not quite as sad as Dumbo. That got too real), BUT the good part is that everyone only really remembers the fancy-free prancing of this growing deer and his animal friends. That’s sort of ideal experience though, isn’t it? Get through all the tough times, but come out remembering the best of those times. Spread that positive experience to your staff and patients with this Bambi scrub top.

18. Tooniforms 6546 Women’s V-Neck Scrub Top
I never watched a whole bunch of Hello Kitty as a child, but I saw a few episodes and they were… bizarrely calm? Well… anyway, Hello Kitty is a giant hit with people all over the world. She has become an icon for fashion, cute culture, individuality, and maybe stereotypes of Asian submissiveness (but there have been lots of rad movements to reverse this trend). So get that kawaii out of your eyes and start spreading the joy with these Hello Kitty scrubs.
