Seven days, seven hours, 51 minutes and 55 seconds to be exact.

54 seconds.

53 seconds.

52 groups across the nation will gather in various locations on February 27th, 2020, to watch the broadcast by Dr. Sandra Rogers at 6:30 MST. Dr. Sandra Rogers is the current international vice president at BYU and the previous college dean.

The informal watch parties hosted by nursing alumni and BYU-alumni chapters across the nation will each have different activities as decided by the hosts. The starting times will also be decided by the hosts. Each party will include refreshments, time to mingle with alumni and other nursing students, games, raffles, and the opportunity to watch the broadcast. The broadcast should last half an hour, meaning that the party itself could last between 90 minutes and two hours.

Guests

The party provides a chance for nursing alumni from BYU and BYU-Idaho to reconnect and a chance for current nursing students to talk with alumni. However, everyone (including alumni from other schools) is welcome to attend!

Raffle Prizes

Raffle prizes at the different host parties include water bottles, copies of the book Nurses at War, College of Nursing t-shirts, and much-coveted BYU socks. (Seriously, everyone loves these socks.)

The BYU campus party—the site of the broadcast—will include Italian sodas, a photo booth, ring toss, and a prize wheel. A doughnut wall is even rumored to appear (but you didn’t hear that from me). Raffle prizes at this location include fudge, umbrellas, and gift cards. The party will begin at 6:00 MST.

The Greatest Prize

In addition to walking away with prizes, new connections to fellow nurses, and great memories, all participants of Night of Nursing will end the night with the greatest gift of all:

A new spatula.
