5 tips for nurses working holidays

If you already know who is working on Christmas, organize a Secret Santa gift exchange. Leave the gift at the nurses’ station with only the recipient’s name on it. The rest of the shift, everyone has to figure out who their Santa is.

ExploreSecret Santa gifts that are great for nurses

Use technology

Set up a Zoom meeting with family or friends so you can eat dinner together or watch presents being opened, even if it’s virtual. FaceTime is also a great tool to connect with loved ones throughout the day. Have someone set up their laptop in the kitchen so you can chat with your grandmother or kids while they prepare what will be leftovers when you get home.

Decorate stations

Spruce up your station with a small tree, garland and other holiday decorations, then challenge nurses on other floors to do the same. Choose an impartial doctor — or even a patient’s family — to judge the stations and determine a winner.

There can be a prize involved, too. Maybe every nurse puts in $5, and the winning nurses get to split the pot. Or maybe the winning station gets to display a reindeer all year. Or maybe it’s just for bragging rights. Regardless, holiday decorations can help boost your mood.

Reschedule activities

Watching your kids open their gifts is often the best part of a parent’s Christmas. If you have to work Christmas morning, consider changing when your family opens gifts. You can even recruit Santa to help you out.

This letter from Santa, created by Stephanie Davisson and posted on her Facebook page, explains to children of hospital nurses that their gifts will be delivered on day other than Christmas Eve. You can probably even create your own letter for a more personalized note from Ol’ St. Nick.

Dress up

No, we don’t mean a nice outfit; that wouldn’t be practical. The one thing not in short supply this holiday season is Christmas-themed apparel.

Don a Santa hat, Elf T-shirt or holiday-themed socks while you’re at work. You can even find scrubs with Santa, snowmen, holiday lights and more on them.
