Among a variety of networking events connecting attendees, the Annual Gala at the Conference – a masquerade ball taking place on Friday, August 9th at 6 pm – will unite attendees in celebration of the week’s festivities as well as the nursing profession itself. The gala will feature a reception, dinner, awards program, and entertainment provided by Vivaz.
