Would You Like to Attend the Gala?
Formal invitations arrived via mail in early September to members of our mailing list, however anyone is welcome to attend the Gala and celebrate nursing with us! Click here to RSVP online and pay via credit card. You can also complete this form to be added to our Gala mailing list.

RSVPs are due October 9th. 


Our Awards Gala is Black Tie Optional. This means that men can feel comfortable wearing either a tuxedo or a dark suit and tie. Women can feel comfortable wearing a formal floor-length gown, a cocktail dress or even a fancy suit.

Gala Tables and Seating
Formal invitations to the Gala will arrive by mail in early September. If you have completed the online form to request notifications from us, or if you are a finalist, nominator, or a Dean/CNO from an award finalist's or scholarship recipient's institution, you are already on our mailing list.

There will be an RSVP card that you will complete stating how many tables you need as well as who you would like to sit at those tables. If you're not purchasing a full table, you can request to sit with others that you know, or we suggest that you work with your institution to be seated at their table(s). We can fit up to 10 people at a table. If an institution purchases a table of 8, they can have their finalist and their guest (both complimentary) sit at their table, for a total of 10 seats.

Please mail the RSVP card, along with your payment, if applicable. You can also choose to reserve and pay via credit card using our online form.

We will assign tables/seating, based on your request(s) and, when guests arrive to the Gala, they will be provided with seating cards containing table assignments. Please note that table location is determined based on sponsorship level and the order in which reservations are received.

Gala Dinner Menu
We will be serving filet and crab cake for dinner, accompanied by salad and New York cheesecake for dessert. Please email Kelly if you have food allergies that we need to be aware of, causing you to need an alternate meal selection. Also, if you're planning to bring children to the Gala and you would like chicken fingers or a burger instead of the main course, please let us know.
