I thought it was one of those parties you go to at a friend's home where a friend is making a little extra money selling something, eg champaign and chocolate type of thing along with lingerie..

How can we be taken seriously as healthcare professionals when we add to the stereotype every Halloween. How often do you see sexy male doctors coming to the party. Tell the sexy teachers, nuns, housekeepers and secretaries hello for me.

The difference is that if you ask: Do firefighters who respond to fires ever have the people they rescue come on to them and assume they're sex bombs? Do nurses in hospitals ever have patients and families (who may not have the aforementioned brainpower) make lewd comments and assume they're available?
I'm with IIg-- live your values. Have fun, but be the change you want to see in the world. There are enough degrading images of nursing making those nutballs think they're right about us already.

I am much more concerned about our profession getting on the same page about education and entry points to practice. I am much more interested in the DNP argument or NPs having independent practice. Almost every profession has disrespectful costumes.
