WASHINGTON, D.C., January 24, 2020 – Today,the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) and Scrubin Uniforms are pleased to announce a new partnership to provide nursing schools, faculty, staff, and students with easy access to high quality scrubs and uniforms at a highly discounted rate. Through this collaboration, Scrubin Uniforms will create customized web portals for participating schools, which will allow students and staff to easily order the apparel needed to practice at various clinical training sites.
"Presenting a professional image is important for nursing students and faculty working with patients and providing healthcare services in hospitals, clinics, and across community settings," said Dr. Deborah Trautman, President and Chief Executive Officer of AACN. "Through our new collaboration with Scrubin Uniforms, we are providing a turnkey solution for our member schools to help ensure that students and faculty can easily order discounted scrubs and uniforms that meet site-specific needs."
Through this partnership, AACN member schools will work directly with Scrubin Uniforms to create an online apparel store, which will be accessible directly from each school's website and will feature the exact items needed for on-site clinical training at hospitals and other settings requiring a uniform. The apparel, which will be selected by individual schools, can be branded with each school's logo to help students and staff present a professional image to patients receiving care. Participating schools will receive, at minimum, a 15% discount off the lowest advertised price for scrubs and uniforms.
"We look forward to working directly with AACN's 825 member institutions to help facilitate access to the apparel needed as part of the clinical education process, which is essential to preparing future nurses," said Vicki Linn, Chief Executive Officer of Scrubin Uniforms. "Our company is committed to tailoring our services to meet the individualized needs of nursing schools of all sizes from coast to coast."
