A Decade of Workwear Comfort 


Cherokee Workwear is proudly celebrating 10 years of delivering reliable, durable, comfortable scrubs to countless healthcare heroes around the world. From day one, our goal has been to design professional uniforms that are as original and versatile as the people who wear them.

To demonstrate that unique versatility, 10 nurses form Children’s Hospital Los Angeles volunteered to model Cherokee Workwear for our spring 2014 catalog. At the same time, they shared their insights, inspiration and stories—unique to them, but universal to nurses and medical professionals everywhere—filled with humor, wisdom, advice and heartfelt emotion.

Their dedication, grace and compassion—the qualities you see in your workplace every day—shine through in the videos and photos you will see on this page throughout the year.

Join us as we celebrate you, and all healthcare workers who contribute so much to our communities.

10 Nurses, 10 Strengths, One Purpose 

Four of the 10 Children’s Hospital Los Angeles pediatric nurses who modeled the Cherokee Workwear Spring 2014 collection share the one thing they wish their patients knew about them.  Listen to what the group, representing 3-32 years of professional experience, feels about the magnitude of what they do, sharing tears and words of encouragement.

Being a healthcare professional is tough. What about your job makes going to work worthwhile?
