G'day, Doc!

Janet Sipple, dean of St. Luke’s School of Nursing at Moravian College, received an honorary doctorate in September from the University of Southern Queensland, Toowoomba, Australia. Its spring (remember, it’s spring Down Under) Commencement ceremonies were held September 13.

St. Luke’s Hospital School of Nursing at Moravian College has an exchange program with USQ that has allowed students from both institutions to learn about clinical practice in nursing in each other’s countries.

In 2001, four nursing students from Australia spent the fall semester at Moravian and St. Luke’s Hospital. Four more students are slated to come to Moravian for the Fall 2003 term.
