NightinGala 2020, Celebrating the Year of the Nurse and Midwife 

Please join us for our annual event celebrating one of our most treasured and valued professions: nursing. 

NightinGala pays tribute to the thousands of nurses within our community who make a phenomenal impact on the lives of patients and their families.  The event this year will take on even more significance as we recognize 2020 as the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife, designated by the World Health Assembly of the World Health Organization. Our fourth annual NightinGala, May 9,  will be a true celebration of the nursing profession, which has been described as both an art and a science.

NightinGala is a joyful reminder of the UTHSC College of Nursing’s mission to prepare exceptional nurse leaders who can meet the health care needs of the people of Tennessee, the nation and beyond.

  • When: Saturday, May 9, 2020, at 6:00 pm
  • Where: Memphis Hilton, 939 Ridge Lake Blvd., Memphis, TN 3820 (map)
  • Event Includes: Presentation and entertainment provided by David Francisco, musician and former "American  Idol" contestant. He will share his story of recovery after being struck by a car and the impact of nurses on his triumph over tragedy.
