Karen Godard, nursing faculty, along with seven junior Child and Family Nursing course students volunteered at the 12th annual Saint Alphonsus Neonatal Intensive Care Unit Graduate Anniversary Party at the Riverside Hotel’s ballroom on Oct. 20. The harvest party served as a chance for families to reunite with their former caregivers.
Families attended the party with their children dressed in Halloween costumes. More than 500 people attended the popular event. Students assisted with guest registration, child-themed games, arts and crafts, and interacting with children of all ages. The Saint Alphonsus staff greatly appreciated the students’ assistance and encouraged their attendance next year, as it allowed the professional nursing and medical staff much needed time to visit with the families and graduates.
