The typical Naughty Nurse Costume features a plunging neckline decorated with a shiny doctor’s stethoscope, and a very short skirt perfect for bending over to assess patients.  Knee-high fishnet stockings complete the look, and are the perfect place to store thermometers.

Mass-produced Halloween costumes initially appeared in stores during the 1930s when trick-or-treating become popular in the United States.  Since the beginning, Naughty Nurse Costumes have been extremely popular.  Women wanted to emulate Nurses Clara Barton and Florence Nightingale, but turned up a notch.

“Who wants to be Nurse Clara Barton, when she can be Naughty Nurse Clearlie Boobtown or Ebola Nurse?” said costume designer Joy Behar.

The GomerBlog team asked Nurse Caty Heron about the implications of mocking nurses in their time-honored, selfless, and gritty profession by wearing these Naughty costumes.  “In Girl World,” she explains, “Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.”

For those hoping for a slutty doctor’s costume, it doesn’t exist.  Everyone knows all females in healthcare are nurses.

For those hoping for a standard nurse costume, it was featured in a recent Miss America pageant worn by Miss Colorado Kelly Johnson during her talent competition monologue.  The “costume” consisted of a timeless purple scrub set, sneakers, and a pale pink nurse’s stethoscope.
