Nursing is a very tedious profession. You have so much to do, from caring for patients to dealing with their families and helping colleagues. If you are not careful, you will never have time for some fun as a nurse. With Halloween just around the corner, it is essential to find ways to have fun with your friends, whether or not you are on duty. 

As a nurse, you work hard every day to care for everyone else. It is important to take some time for yourself and enjoy this holiday. We have compiled a list of five fun Halloween ideas you can try out with your friends. After reading this post, prepare for a spooky and exciting Halloween celebration with your friends.

Fun Halloween Ideas to Try Out With Friends

While there are so many fun Halloween ideas to try out with friends, nurses have to be careful to choose the right ones. This is because while you plan to have fun, you don’t want something that will take you out of your comfort zone. Here are five fun Halloween ideas to try out with your friends this year.

Halloween movie marathon

Host a spooky movie marathon with your friends. You can choose from a variety of horror movies, especially oldies such as "The Shining" or "The Exorcist." What’s a movie night without snacks and drinks? Don't forget to prepare some to make the experience even more enjoyable. You can invite your friends over earlier to prepare some punch and popcorn or crackers for the night.

Pumpkin carving contest

How good are you with carving pumpkins? Remember that pumpkins are the symbol of Halloween. Consider hosting a pumpkin carving contest with your friends. There are several ways to get the pumpkins for your contest. You can either buy them from a local store or go pumpkin picking at a nearby farm. While making your preparations, ensure that you have some carving tools and stencils ready. The winner gets bragging rights and a prize.

Costume party

Halloween cannot be separated from costumes. If you are going to be at work on this holiday, then you can consider having a mini costume party with your colleagues. Dress up in your favorite nurse-themed Halloween costumes and host a mini costume party at work. You can decorate your nurse station and the wards with spooky decorations, such as spider webs, bats, and ghosts. Don't forget to take permission from the administrative team and invite patients and their loved ones to take part.

Halloween-themed potluck

Host a Halloween-themed potluck with your friends. This idea can work at home or while on duty at the hospital. Ask your friends or colleagues to bring their favorite Halloween-inspired dish or drink. Get your dining space ready so you can have fun here during your break period if you are at work. To spice things up, you can decorate the table with spooky decorations, such as skulls, candles, and pumpkins.

Halloween scavenger hunt

Our final idea is a Halloween scavenger hunt. Achieving this is not farfetched. Discuss with your friends to create a Halloween scavenger hunt. You can hide clues around the house or neighborhood that lead to a final prize. Make it more fun by adding some spooky challenges along the way.
