Did nurses wear scrubs in the late 60s and mid 70s?
My mom was a nurse starting out in 1969 and worked until 1982 and she said that scrubs were the only things that the nurses wore back when she was nursing. How true was this. Any nurses out there in that time period to confirm.

Not in the UK - they wore uniforms of different colours to denote their level. But I couldn't say what they did in the USA.

There was a time when nurses wore white uniforms , dress style.
