College of Nursing Award Recipients
Lifetime Achievement Award
As if being dean of Marquette’s College of Nursing for 20 years wasn’t already legacy enough, Sister Rosalie was the one responsible for moving the college from the St. Joseph’s Hospital campus to Marquette. She remains close to the college, including working on its 75th anniversary celebration.
Distinguished Alumna of the Year Award
DR. PATRICIA LAUER BERTSCHE, NURS '76
Lake Forest, Ill.
“Do it right and do it safely” isn’t so much advice as it is a lifetime commitment for Pat, who introduced ergonomic interventions for worker safety and health while with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and established the Institute for Ergonomics at Ohio State University.
Distinguished Alumna in Service to Nursing Award
MARY CORRIGAN CARY, NURS '72
A nurse since 1972, Mary knows her way around a hospital: pediatrics, intensive care, hospice, adult oncology, hematology. But nothing beats the time she spends in the grandmother department.
