My my, how nurses uniforms have changed over the years. In years past they were crisp, snappy and form fitting, not at all practicable for the chores associated with your nursing duties. My mother would tell me stories about having to wear uniforms such as this when she was in nursing school. I rather get the impression she hated it, but today we have a much more efficient alternative... scrubs. Scrubs are baggy rather than form fitting, not flattering to the figure but certainly easier to move around in than the old starched uniforms. With all things there is progress, sometimes this progress is a bad thing, eliminating what was old and useful in favor of the new fad. In the case of nurses uniforms though, progress was a good thing.
Also it's like the changes in health insurance, you need a good agent for health coverage to find the best insurance... if that's even possible anymore.
