1. Get to wear a cool costume at work.
2. Make a difference in people’s lives.
3. Work with some really awesome people.
4. Learn something new every day.
5. Be creative and innovative in the care of my patients.
I’ve been a nurse for over 5 years, and I have to say that I love it! Nursing is one of the most rewarding careers out there. There are so many opportunities in nursing that you can be sure to find the right fit for you.
One of my favorite things about nursing is that it’s a profession that’s always changing. The technology, new research and discoveries, and new treatments are constantly evolving. It’s an exciting time to be a nurse!
In addition to being an exciting career, nursing is also a very fun career. Here are my Top 5 Fun Things To Do As A Nurse:
There are a lot of things you can do as a nurse to keep yourself entertained at work. Here is my list of my top 5 fun things to do as a nurse:
1. Have your coworkers fill out the patient’s pain score for you.
2. Tell the family that their loved one will be fine just to get them out of your hair, then watch the doctor scramble to save their life
3. Take an ambulance ride with a patient and make up crazy stories about how they got injured
4. Get patients to sign over their assets in exchange for you not giving them meds (only works on rich people)
5. When someone asks what time it is, tell them there’s no time here – we only have space!
I’m a nurse. I love my job, and I love the people I work with. We have a lot of fun at work, and I want to share some of my favorite things to do as a nurse with others.
1. Busy Work: When you are bored at work, it is always fun to do busy work. This could include rearranging cabinets, putting away supplies, or any other busy work you can think of. It will make the time pass more quickly and be more productive than just sitting around doing nothing!
2. Hide and Seek: A classic game that everyone knows how to play! When you are bored at work, this is a perfect way to have some fun with your co-workers. Just be careful not to get caught playing by your boss!
3. Have a Laugh: Everyone loves laughing! Some of the funniest moments being a nurse is when patients say the strangest things, or family members say things they shouldn’t in front of their loved one. These moments can be funny for weeks after they happen!
4. Venting Sessions: Sharing feelings with your coworkers allows you to have an outlet for all of your frustrations at work, and helps you feel better about what happened during the day.
It’s that time of year again. The leaves are changing, there’s a chill in the air, and Halloween is just around the corner. Everyone has their favorite holiday, this is one of mine. There are so many special things about Halloween that can make it special for nurses. Here’s my top 5!
1. You get to wear scrubs all day! It doesn’t even have to be your normal uniform, you can wear any color scrubs you want and no one will question it!
2. You get to enjoy a guilt-free sugar high all day long (just don’t forget to brush your teeth)!
3. You get to dress up as anything you want: nurse, doctor, vampire, zombie…the possibilities are endless!
4. You can play “operation” all day long with your friends and family (without getting sued).
5. If you work in a hospital or nursing home you get to see everyone dressed up and pass out candy to patients and residents who may not be able to leave their rooms for trick or treating!
I hope everyone has a happy and safe Halloween!
Dressing up as a nurse for Halloween is so popular that the American Nurse Association has even come out with their own line of nurse costumes.
I’ve been a nurse for over 20 years, and I’ve never dressed up as a nurse for Halloween. If I did, however, here are my top five ideas.
1. Dress up as a candy striper when they were still called candy stripers (circa 1960s). The uniform was actually red and white stripes. No one under 30 knows what a real candy striper is anyway, so you could always tell people you’re dressing up as an old-timey pub bartender or something.
2. Dress up as a naughty nurse. You can go the traditional route with the fishnet stockings and heels, or go for more of a punk look with combat boots, ripped tights and some pasties . . . if you really want to shock the kiddies.
3. Dress up as a real nurse from any decade – just find a picture of an old-timey nurse online and copy the uniform. You could even get a group together and all be different decades/eras of nurses together!
4. Go to your local thrift store and
The nurse costume is a great idea for Halloween. It’s very easy to put together, and it can be adapted to fit any age, gender or budget. Most items can be found at a thrift store or in your closet, so it’s a great way to save money!
The first thing you will need is a white dress shirt. You can either get this at a thrift store or borrow one from your father/husband/boyfriend/brother. If you decide to borrow one, just make sure you take good care of it and return it in the same condition as when you received it!
Next you need some white pants or shorts. Again, these can be found at thrift stores or borrowed from someone who has them already. If the white pants aren’t long enough to cover your entire leg, then add some white socks (or knee-highs) over top of them so that no skin shows through!
Now that we have our basic outfit, let’s accessorize! A stethoscope around your neck will give an authentic touch to this costume; plus it will come in handy if someone needs medical attention while trick-or-treating with you! For extra realism, carry around some bandages and gauze pads too (
