It’s that time of year when you start thinking about costumes, spooky decorations, parties and even tricks to play on your friends and family. As a nurse, it can be a great time of year to dress up and have some fun in your nursing career. Your team may decide to host a Halloween party, a harvest gathering or a costume contest. However, they decide to celebrate, it might be fun to make every day more interesting with Halloween nursing scrubs.
Like many jobs, you are probably required to wear a certain outfit to work as a nurse. You might be asked to wear a certain color of scrubs and a pair of shoes. Day after day of work can get tedious as you wear the same thing but when the holidays roll around, you might be able to wear something a bit more fun. Halloween scrubs! These are a popular choice among healthcare professionals as it is a holiday that is constant so buying several themed pairs can be a smart investment.
How to Choose
Even though you are stuck wearing scrubs, a uniform, you are still able to have a bit of fun with your wardrobe. Why not pick some Halloween scrubs that really show your personality? You might like a scarier pattern or maybe something to do with the medical side of your job such as skeletons or blood? If you work with kids at your practice, the more colorful the better. The young patients will enjoy the effort you put in for your attire and your attempt to make them smile.
The Final Decision
Keep in mind your scrubs should still be comfortable and the style your practice requires. You’ll still be helping patients, so you want to be sure to choose the best color and fit. For example, if you work in a trauma unit, white scrubs, even with a spooky print, might not hold up the best against all the blood and spills you deal with on an hourly basis. Put a spare pair in your car or locker so you get to enjoy the many days before Halloween that you’re able to wear something different.
