Top 5 Reasons to Wear a Scrub Cap (some may surprise you!)
Why Wear a Scrub Cap
Scrub caps have always been seen throughout the healthcare environment and tons of professions wear them daily.
Veterinarians, Vet Techs, Dentists, Dental Hygienists, Dental Assistants, Nurses, Doctors.
The list goes on and on.
I started wearing scrub caps when I entered the Nursing Profession in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic. I thought it was the best way to tame my hair with all the PPE that was being worn.
Soon after I realized there were so many reasons to be wearing scrub caps and that is when NYA Scrub Caps was born!
I was so used to seeing the classic styles of scrub caps and the prints of fabric that have always been worn. I thought there was an opportunity to offer a cute, fresh alternative to the age old product.
I grabbed my sewing machine and begin making them and the response was great! I was on to something.
When I first started my career in nursing I was unaware of the benefits of wearing a surgical cap and I thought they were strictly for OR staff.
I now know that they are not only for these workers and scrub caps are worn by lots of scrub wearing enthusiasts across all professions!
NYA Scrub Caps are breathable, long hair approved, and equipped with buttons to protect your ears from skin breakdown.
Guaranteed to brighten the days of those around you 100% of the time.
Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Wear a Scrub Cap
1. Wearing a scrub cap makes hair styling so much easier and faster!
Put your long hair in a low bun, throw the scrub cap on and you're good to go!
This was extremely important to me.
Working a shift work job means early mornings and long days. Being able to skip the hair styling before my shift really allowed me to spend more time sleeping or meal prepping for my shift.
2. Your hair will be protected from being soiled throughout your shift.
Whether you're working in a Hospital, Dental Office, or in Veterinary Medicine you're sure to have a reason to protect your hair.
Let's face it, our jobs can be pretty gross at times.
There were many moments when I was so thankful I had my hair covered and protected when i accidentally reached up to scratch my head.
3. Show off your personality!
This was a huge plus for me especially during the pandemic.
Having to wear all the PPE really takes away from your individuality and everyone begins looking the same.
Wearing a cute scrub cap allows you to show off your personality and brighten the days of everyone around you.
I find that when I walk into a patient's room at the beginning of the shift my scrub cap was able to be a conversation starter.
Building a working relationship with your patient is essential!
I really found that having a unique cap on really helped them feel comfortable talking to me.
Even if it was just "Wow, I like your cap!"
4. Protection of your ears
Wearing masks has become a norm and protection of our ears has become super important.
All NYA Scrub Caps are equipped with two buttons that allow your mask to fit securely and safely.
Protecting your ears from skin irritation and breakdown.
You're taking care of others your whole shift. Don't forget to take care of yourself too!
5. Brighten someones day
This reason really ties in with the personality point above. I think wearing a cute scrub cap that is happy looking really has a positive effect on our patients.
Many of those that we are caring for are scared and their family members are looking to us for a reassuring smile during difficult times.
Wearing a scrub cap that is bright and sunshine looking really has the ability to lighten someones mood and cheer up those around you!
