These nurses' uniforms of the 2000s (known as scrubs) are radically different to the uniforms of old. Nurses now wear loose polycotton tops and pants and cover their hair with a range of colourful caps in the operating theatre. The uniforms are casual and very practical. Though nursing uniforms now come in a range of colours, some are the traditional white. These theatre nurses work for the Auckland District Health Board.
