Happy St. Patrick’s Day! How do you Celebrate?

St. Patrick’s Day is mainly an Irish event as the Irish have celebrated this holiday for more than a thousand years. However, people all over the world, especially in Western countries, celebrate this holiday as well. This holiday comes up on March 17 every year.

How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day as a nurse considering your busy schedule? The good news is that even if you are duty, you can still find time to celebrate this holiday with your patients and colleagues. This post will show you a few exciting ideas to consider.

How to Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day as a Nurse

You don’t have to be Irish to celebrate this holiday. As a nurse, you can make preparations to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with your nurse colleagues or patients in your wards. Here are some ideas that you can consider:

Set up green decorations

We can easily consider green to be the official color for St. Patrick’s Day celebration. This is because many of the people who attend the St. Patrick’s Day parade adorn themselves in different shades of green. In the spirit of the season, you can set up some green decorations in your wards and offices. A good place to start is re-using the green steamers you used during Christmas to decorate the main lobby or break room.

Serve delicious treats

Do you like to bake or cook and do you have some time on your hands? Then you should consider making some delicious treats for this holiday. If you don’t have the time, you can place an order for a few treats at your local bakery. To add some spice, you can tell them to make the treats shamrock green. Share these treats with your colleagues and some of the patients and their families.

Play music

Music always plays a key role in any celebration and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception. You can create a list of songs that people love to listen to during this holiday. Otherwise, you can choose a radio station that will play traditional Irish music. Make sure that the music is not too loud so that it doesn’t become offensive. You can also ask your nurse colleagues and some of the patients to share their music choices. This way, you can add their songs to your playlist.

Add green to your dress

Add green accessories to your dress

As mentioned earlier, people tend to wear green on this holiday. You can follow suit by adding green to your dress on March 17. You don’t have to change your uniform. Simply get some green accessories and add them to your dress. Examples include green ribbons, shamrock glasses, leprechaun hats, a green hair tie, etc.


St. Patrick’s Day can still be fun despite your busy schedule as a nurse. This post has shared some ideas to help you enjoy this year’s celebration. Do you have any other ideas?
