An Evening with the Stars

Winter 2014 As Seen in Our Winter 2014 Issue
An Evening with the Stars

With 125 years of history already in the air, five people joined the galaxy of Hopkins Nursing at An Evening With the Stars, a third-annual fall gala at the school. Surrounded by alumni, students, staff, faculty, and friends of the school as well as nurses from across the medical system, four Shining Star Award winners were chosen from the Johns Hopkins-affiliated hospitals and the School of Nursing. There was a separate winner of the second-annual Rosenwald Star Nurse of the Year Award.
