It’s after the holidays and we’re sitting here dreaming of holidays for nurses that we wish could be real. It’s free to dream so here goes!
National Post-Holiday Holiday
Whoever thinks holidays are relaxing and peaceful must live in the boondocks or must NOT be a nurse. Christmas and New Year are some of the busiest days of the year for nurses who have to spend it at work.
Patients who are well enough to go home are discharged, but patients who are really really sick are left behind. And then of course, there’s that influx of patients who have gotten sick due to the holidays from forgetting their medicines or overindulging.
And on the flip side, nurses who are lucky enough to score vacation time usually get caught up in the usual flurry of mad holiday activities like shopping and wrapping up a gazillion gifts and meeting a flock of friends and relatives.
So yeah, we totally need a holiday from the holidays!

Carribean Nurse Holiday
On this day, all nurses get a FREE and all-expense paid trip to a Caribbean resort where we can laze under the warm sun in a bikini, get a lovely tan, and sip margaritas.
National No-Emergency Holiday
Since we are the powers that be, we were toying with the idea of a No-Telephone holiday. But hey, that won’t work too well if we gotta run over for emergencies so we hatched a better idea.
Why not a national No-Emergency holiday? With this supplementary holiday, we get to enjoy our Caribbean holiday with no distractions!
