Ideas for Throwing an Unforgettable Nursing Graduation Party

Once again, Pinterest has distracted me from the task at hand- mowing the lawn. The promise of party planning while wearing my slippers and sweats has much more allure than cutting the grass, or more like clover, that I call my lawn. So, let's get crafty. If you know, or are yourself, a recent nursing or NP school graduate, a celebratory bash is certainly in order. What better way to kick off your career than a nursing-themed graduation party. 

I've hit up the internet, and a few friends and family, for some of the best nursing school graduation party eats, treats, and decor that will make your affair one for the record books. Here are a few of the best ideas for creating a memorable nursing themed party for your favorite graduate.

Where did you get the invitations from?


The grammatically correct sentence is, "I'm finished.", not "I'm done." As my mother always told us (she holds a masters degree in English), "Cookies get done, people get finished!"
