One of my younger cousins who finished her nursing course two years ago and is currently working as a nurse in one of the known cosmetic surgery centers in the country is planning to continue her studies and this time she wants to dwell in the world of doctors not as an assistant but as the lead, herself. She's already married with twin daughters to boot so her decision doesn't only revolve around her but about and around her family as well, aside from the time and effort that she have to put in in order to make it in medical school, money is also one of the factors. The tuition alone, cost to around hundreds of thousands depending on the school you'll get into plus the reference materials and other stuff needed in the study of medicine, one needs to have a mountain of gold and silver to make it through. Good thing, affordable scrubs are now available, though it won't do that big of a difference, the thought that something inexpensive in relation to medicine is there just makes it a little bit manageable.
Scrubs are practically a part of a doctor's life, so investing in them is a necessity, no practicing doctor will wear one scrub for the rest of the week, that is so unhygienic, and as we all know, most doctors are of the OC kind in terms of cleanliness *grins*. My cousin and I were even talking about buying several scrub uniforms, getting them in bulk and in sets is practical, doctors tend to use them as an everyday wear so purchasing extras is a money-saver in the long run. I told my cousin that she's getting way over her head and she told me that people needs to dream big so they can accomplish huge feat. And here I was, just talking about her future scrub fixation and she's talking about saving the world, our wavelengths just doesn't seem to meet sometimes *grins*.
I think, my cousin would be a fashion icon of scrubs in the hospital she'll be working in, why would I say that? Because as of the moment, though she haven't ask her husband's opinion yet or haven't computed where she's gonna get the funding for her studies, she's already planning on buying those branded scrubs the minute she gets her first paycheck as a doctor, if that's not crazy, I don't know what is. But, seriously, I just found out that there are branded scrubs, too, I always thought that all medical and lab gowns and scrubs are just made of the same materials and of the same manufacturers, now, even surgical doctors are in fashion, our world is really changing eh? For the meantime, she plans on getting those green scrubs, I think it's not that expensive and it's comfortable to wear, at least, she still have some wits on her *grins*. Kidding aside, I think she'll do great on whatever she decides, she's a great person and she do well with others, unlike me, and with her family backing her up, I think she can conquer the world if she wants to.
Go and fulfill your dream, you crazy you!
