Good news!!!!

You can start with just two pairs of scrubs and wash them after every two shifts until you get paid and and can afford some more. Is there scrubs store by you so you see on clearance (better deals than online) or thrift shops or eBay. My husband recently switched hospitals and he had to switch color of his scrubs. Omg what the pain that was.

We now have ton of old scrubs still in a good condition but wrong color and it took forever to build a set of a new color as his top and bottom sizes don’t match at all.

You said 5xl tops. What color? I swear I saw bigger sizes out there in scrubs store when I was looking for hubby. I can look some up for you online as not sure when I’ll get to the store.

Oh I have another thought. When you get interviewed and offered a job ask if they give one pair of scrubs to start. One place my husband worked for gave away a pair a year. You never know

But be mindful buying scrubs ahead of time as if you get hired in
some different place they might require different color and you’ll be stuck with wrong colors

Go to uniform city web site right now. Cherokee tops have sale price of 10.98 size 5xl. Not patterned but bright.

Amazon doesn’t have good deals for scrubs.

Thanks for all the ideas and replies!! I'm going to my last place of employment tomorrow to apply. They have no color code and I called and the DON told me to just come in and fill out an application. I know she remembers me. I just hope it's not in a bad light... eBay had pretty good prices and I found bottoms I like in my size. Thank goodness!! Everything should be arriving Tuesday and Wednesday. Or Wednesday and Thursday. Lol. I'm a mix between excited and nervous again. I saw my pdoc last week and she gave me a script of anxiety meds to get me through this transitional period. I don't want to go back to relying on them. So hopefully everything works out from here...

Got all my stuff in the mail, everything fits, went and applied at the places that are hiring here. All 2 of them and I have been waiting... impatiently. I tried calling to "check" on the status of my application but was met with what I felt was offhand rudeness. Both places said they are hiring and need cnas. You'd think they would start interviewing as they got applications cause excuse me but this town is not exactly booming... and the turnover rate at both places is rather high. I know both of them well and people who work there or used to work there. The hospital is not taking on new Cna's unfortunately or that would be my first choice. But what can you do? My luck lately I'll be working at Wal-Mart soon... ugh..

Still waiting.. it's coming on Friday. When I get up I guess I'm gonna scout around on indeed... I'm feeling pretty low after money being spent on the recertification $200 and scrubs $100 that I have to start looking elsewhere. Desperate times here... My boyfriend is super paranoid he is on the last leg of his job even tho he is fairly new. He has only been coached once by a manager and it was about not getting to his lunch break on time or similar.. his coworkers seem to have a lot to say but no clout and he has some learning issues and low confidence so he is super worried so that makes me worried and stress and pressed to find work. I have serious MI and am not comfortable outside my profession. Ugh!!!
