You can always jump into the role of a nurse when you wear one of our nurse costumes.

Movie Nurse Costume Ideas
Nurses are one of the many real-life hero occupations of the world, much like police officers and fire fighters. It’s really no surprise that nurses have been immortalized in TV and movies. From Carla Espinosa in Scrubs, to Claire Temple in the immensely popular Marvel superhero show Daredevil , these nurses are prime examples of heroic deeds. Nurses CAN play the bad guy though, too. There’s something about how much control they have over the fate of their patients that can be downright dangerous when placed into the wrong hands. Here are a couple of movie nurses who truly are the embodiment of naughty.
Joker Nurse Costume
Everyone hailed Heath Ledger’s performance in The Dark Knight as one of the best portrayals of the Joker ever. No one frazzles the Batman quite like him and we even got to see the Joker don a nurse outfit during the movie. This twisted nurse costume may help you nail that look. When you pair this costume up with a wig and some Joker makeup , you’re ready to become the agent of chaos that you were always meant to be. But, for the love of all that’s good, don’t head to any hospitals while wearing your nurse Joker costume, unless you want Batman right on your heels.
Kill Bill Nurse Costume
Another villainous nurse from the silver screen comes to us in the Quentin Tarantino’s classic film series Kill Bill . Everyone remembers the eerie tune whistled by Elle Driver and it’s a good thing that she’s not a real nurse.

This Elle Driver nurse costume is an exclusive costume, licensed from the Kill Bill films and designed by our very own costume designers. It’s a high-quality style that’s perfect for any fan of the movies. All you have to do is track down Beatrix Kiddo and exact your revenge upon her!

Doctor Costume and Nurse
It might be a little obvious, but pairing a doctor with a nurse is a go-to when making a nurse couples costume. Turk and Carla from Scrubs are a great example of this classic kind of romance. All you need to make this costume work is match this nice nurse costume with a set of our doctor scrubs . These realistic costumes may even fool the real staff at a hospital, so we don’t recommend heading out to the ER for a romantic night out! Take it up a notch with a sexy doctor costume and a set of sexy scrubs!

This vintage nurse costume turns your little girl into one of the finest that the medic unit has ever seen and this child soldier costume turns your little one into a hero fighting in the Great War.
Zombie Nurse Costume and Sheriff
Popular culture just loves zombies ! Everyone seems to be eating them up, or rather, the undead seem to be eating us up. Movies like World War Z, Warm Bodies, and Zombieland have been hitting the silver screen. Deadpool fought a legion of zombie presidents in the comics, but of course, the show that no one can stop talking about is The Walking Dead . This zombie nurse and sheriff combination is inspired by the first season of the iconic show, where Rick Grimes makes his escape from a hospital full of walkers!
