The NightinGala serves as a time to reflect, renew and reconnect with the College of Nursing as we celebrate our current standing in our mission to educate the next generation of nurse leaders and healthcare professionals. We will also celebrate by presenting two awards: the Volunteer Nursing Champion Award, which recognizes an individual who is committed to improving healthcare and has made significant contributions to the community, and the Dr. Sylvia E. Hart Distinguished Alumni of the Year Award, which goes to a graduate of the College of Nursing who exemplifies excellence through outstanding achievement, creativity and service to their profession.

This fun-filled evening will consist of dinner and both silent and live auctions. Immediately following the program there will be dessert and entertainment from The Coveralls on the terrace. All proceeds will support the efforts of the College of Nursing to develop and educate the next generation of nurse leaders by providing nursing students state-of-the art technology, classroom space, and equipment to receive the highest quality educational experiences.
