All 47 Pairs of Scrubs Merritt Wever Has Worn on Nurse Jackie

Nurse Jackie’s lovably eccentric Zoey Barkow, played by Merritt Wever, stands out at All Saints Hospital. That’s not a comment about the character’s indomitable spirit, although that certainly helped win over her cranky boss, veteran trauma nurse and recovering drug addict Jackie Peyton (Edie Falco). It’s all about Zoey’s signature scrubs. The threads she chooses to wear while tending to the infirm tend to be pink and feature a few of her favorite things: flowers, bunnies, bears, butterflies, you name it. On one occasion, she opted out of her singular style for drab grey, “a sign of remorse,” she said, for having accidentally put a film critic in a coma; there was also the period when a corporate takeover forced the staff into generic dark-blue scrubs. With Nurse Jackie’s sixth season set to end on Sunday, let’s take a look at all 47 custom-made outfits Zoey has sported over the years, in chronological order.
