I graduate from college in December, and I will be graduating with a degree in Nursing (R.N.). I would like to throw a party and I know there has to be many creative ideas for a "Nurse-themed" party... but Im just not that creative. If anyone has ANY ideas, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
syringe shape cake. foil lined bed pan snack tray. invitations pill bottle shape. or have it themed like the old sitcom "M.A.S.H. 4077".
This brought back so many memories. I graduated as a nurse and the party was at my house. I hosted the whole class. The stress had been incredible and there was alot of imbibing and just chips, dip and finger foods. Crock pot wings and stuff you could walk around and eat. The coolest thing was that one of the instructors gave each of us an autographed roll of toilet paper wishing us Best Wishes!! and not to take "crap" off folks (i.e. doctors, administrators etc) in our future careers. Good luck with your party and good luck with your career!
You can have everyone wear PJ's /scrubs/ etc and decorate with rolled bandages. Want some games? Use a sheet to make a gurney roll up the sides and transport someone from one location to another. Use tong depressors and make a tossing or dropping game. (maybe into a bedpan) You could make a slumber party cake http://jas.fami efinder/display?
Fun group game is spoons - deck of cards around a table and you have 1 less spoon than players. Get all 4 of the same number you grab a spoon one left without looses. Like musical chairs. Hope these links help also.
Must have jello in cups
How about everyone come in pj's or scrubs, nursing outfits. Must have jello! Finger foods Use rolled bandages for decorations. CAKE - Slumber Party cake would be cute
Great ideas in this link http://209.15.1 e_parties_4.html
Games? Use a sheet - roll up the sides and transport like a gurney make it a race
Play spoons around a table Deck of cards, pass face down and when someone gets all 4 of the same number they grab a spoon from the center of the table. THen the rest grab. Left out - like musical chairs.
Throw or drop a tongue depressor into a bed pan?
Use tongue depressors to spread dips.
Hope this sparks your creativety It helps to know how many people you plan to have. Location of party range of ages etc.
I would like to have very elegant type party for my daughter who will be graduating in May 2009. She is also an Alpha Kappa Alpha
Nursing School Party Games
My Mom was a nurse. When I was young my Mom would rent a cottage on lake Erie for 12 friends and me to stay for a week. At night we would turn down the lights and play "The Body Parts Game!" Each of us would find a household item that would feel like a body part. We would blind fold everyone, then pass each part a long so each of us could say what we thought the actual household item was. Example: A peeled grape was an eyeball. "This is an eyeball" would be announced before the peeled grape was passed. Or maybe a hot dog with a shrimp shell fingernail, was a finger. A piece of latex glove feels a lot like skin.
Another thing we loved to do was fill up latex gloves with water, like water balloons. Although that may seem a little childish, it's good adult fun too! So what if you get a little wet, as long as it's not a cold day or night outside. Latex gloves hold up pretty good when thrown. Another fun thing to do is tell hospital stories. My Mom would tell us "nurse stories!" She told a story about a lady that was having a baby. There was a tar like stuff on the baby that the nurse needed help with removing . The nurse said something about removing the "copia"
The new Mom to be yelled out "That's what I'll name my baby! That's what I'll name my baby! Folks I may have the wrong name (copia)for the tar like stuff but it was something like that. It's been a long time ago. This getting old isn't for sissy's, so please bear with me! My Mom was born in 1901, and she was young back then. If someone out there would like to correct me as to the name of the tar like stuff on babies, I would gratefully appreciate it.
Have fun! A big round of applause to all the nurses that graduate this year! We really need you!
