There are generally three types of nurse uniforms in our country: pink, green, and white, and there are also some broken flowers. Nurses in obstetrics and pediatrics generally wear pink, which is a soft color that symbolizes warmth and harmony.
Considering that children are prone to fear of white, the visual effect of pink is much better, which can alleviate the fear of children when seeing a doctor. White is a symbol of purity, and white nurse uniforms are usually worn in clinics and wards. In the emergency department, intensive care unit, and operating room, nurses generally wear light green nurse uniforms. Such a hue can alleviate the fear of critically ill patients and also represents a strong vitality.
In countries around the world, nurse uniforms of various colors and styles emerge in an endless stream. The United States’ nurse uniforms are relatively casual. In summer, there are dark green nurse uniforms similar to T-shirts; in Japan, there are uniform floral styles; especially in India. The nurses’ uniforms, with the ingredients of traditional saris, appear to have unique national characteristics. However, throughout the world, the nurses’ uniforms are still mainly in traditional white.
