Sharon Berridge has been named the 2023 Lutheran Nurse of the Year. The Executive Care Manager of Tanunda Lutheran Home in South Australia’s Barossa Valley, Sharon was recognised with the annual award by the Lutheran Nurses Association of Australia (LNAA) on 12 May, International Nurses Day.
Nominations are open for the Lutheran Nurse of the Year award for 2023. The award recognises faithful and outstanding service during the preceding calendar year by a registered or enrolled nurse who is an active member of a Lutheran congregation in Australia or New Zealand.
Australian Lutheran College (ALC) Principal James Winderlich was among 98 graduates awarded for academic achievements by the University of Divinity last week. The online graduation, along with the ALC Valedictory Service held in November, rounded out the year for the college.
It’s time to start thinking about your nominee for the Lutheran Nurse of the Year award for 2022. Nominations may be submitted by congregations, schools, aged-care facilities or other bodies or agencies within the LCANZ.
