NURDLE! A Word Game for Nurses, Doctors, and All Healthcare Professionals!

NURDLE is a remake of the popular word game but with a twist… the words you’re guessing are related to nursing and healthcare. This includes hospital lingo and slang, abbreviations, and brand names of common pharmaceuticals. 

To plat NURDLE, guess a 5 letter word — don’t worry, you’ll get six tries! If the word of the day contains any of the letters you guessed, they’ll turn yellow or green on the keyboard and letter grid. Green indicates that letter is in the correct position, while yellow indicates the word does contain that letter, but it’s not in the right place. Grey indicates that the word does not contain that letter at all.

Keep trying and using the feedback provided to narrow down your guesses until you find the correct word. If you try six times without success, you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to play again (it will be a different word though).

And don’t forget, you’re already a leg up because you know all the jargon! If you need a refresher, check out this article on commonly used hospital lingo and “nurse slang” that we found!
