Do you have to be a nurse to wear scrubs? If you are a receptionist, can you wear them to work? ?

I got a job as a data entry clerk at a medical office. I am not a nurse, nor do I plan to become one. But i was wondering, are you supposed to be a nurse before you can wear scrubs or is it like against the code or something to wear scrubs if you are not a nurse or higher than a nurse. I dont want people people to think im like a hoax or something…

There’s no law against it-the office may have a dress code.
I will say, unless they supply them, you can find street clothes just as comfortable and a lot less expensive.
Also, since the idea behind wearing scrubs is infection control, it is kind of bogus to wear them if you aren’t exposed to body fluids.
