Nurses often do not give themselves the credit they deserve. You are saving lives and impacting health care around the world with very little bravado. The Nursing Alumni Society is committed to honoring those who have gone above and beyond.
The Shirley Novosel Distinguished Nursing Alumni Award recognizes an alumnus/alumna who exemplifies the spirit of nursing and the Penn State College of Nursing’s ideals and philosophy. If you know someone you would like to nominate, please complete the online nomination form.
Each year, we recognize one undergraduate and one graduate student who engage in service activities that support individuals, families, and/or communities and that encourage and foster the nurse’s personal and professional development. If you know a deserving student, please nominate him or her! Mentors—you may know the students best, so we encourage you to consider nominating your student.
