The College of Nursing at Resurrection University celebrated its Centennial Anniversary Celebration with a program and dinner for 400 guests at the Hilton Rosemont Saturday night that included a one-of-a-kind cake unveiled by celebrity pastry chef Duff Goldman, an Outstanding Alumni Awards presentation and a keynote speech by NFL Hall of Famer Mike Singletary.

Goldman unveiled a design that reflected the college's past and present. The College of Nursing was founded and housed inside West Suburban Hospital in Oak Park, and was at that location until 2010. It then moved to Wicker Park, to a state of the art facility housed inside Presence Saint Elizabeth Hospital that includes a Simulation Lab with two Sim mannequins and a Sim Infant, a Library, 24-hour Student Lounge with Laptop Bar and SMART classrooms in a LEED certified building equipped with the latest technology.

The cake was a representation of the old building in Oak Park, and included a figure that depicted a nurse from years past, dressed in traditional uniform, nurse cap and cape, holding a lamp that glowed -- most notably known as a symbol of Florence Nightingale, the mother of modern nursing, who carried the lamp at night to visit the sick in the 1800s. The second part of the cake was a depiction of the new building in Wicker Park, and the figures were symbols of today's nurse -- a male and female using an iPad that had a lighted visual display. The cake was designed and baked by Charm City Cakes' Baltimore location and driven to Chicago for the event.
