School of Nursing Homecoming Brunch welcomes back alumni, honors Donna Zazworsky with Shirley Novosel Distinguished Nursing Alumni Award.

The School of Nursing Homecoming Brunch, held Sunday, October 16th, brought together alumni, friends, and current students of the School.  The brunch featured tours of the Simulation Lab from current students as well as the presentation of the 2011 Shirley Novosel Distinguished Nursing Alumni Award.  Established in 1996, the Novosel award is presented annually by the Penn State Nursing Alumni Society to an alumnus/alumna who exemplifies the spirit of nursing and the Penn State School of Nursing’s ideals and philosophy.

This year’s winner, Donna Zazworsky, received her BS from the School of Nursing in 1976.  Ms. Zazworsky currently serves as the Vice President of Community Health and Continuum Care for the Carondelet Health Network in Tucson, Arizona.  In this role, Zazworsky leads the continuum efforts of multiple Carondelet programs and services related to access to health care, health promotion and disease management.  These include the Southern Arizona Health Village for the Homeless, Faith Community Nursing, Diabetes Care Center, the Carondelet Diabetes Education Institute and Telemedicine programs. Carondelet Health Network is part of Ascension Health, the nation’s largest not-for-profit, Catholic hospital system.
