Lewicki, currently senior nurse researcher at the Cleveland Clinic, previously worked as clinician, educator, administrator and researcher. Because of her outstanding professional experience, she was recently awarded a 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Cleveland Clinic Ziolony Nursing Institute. As Lewicki celebrates her 40th anniversary of graduation from St. John College this year, we asked her to reflect on her inspiring career.
In the February 1957 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine, you will find a photo essay titled, “Student Nurse,” featuring St. John College alumna Helen Harding ’56 S.J. The lead reads: “Nursing isn’t glamorous or easy but Helen Harding learned in four years of giving baths, scrubbing wards, witnessing pain and death that she had met the challenge of her life. Here is the story of the rewarding career of a nurse.”

In 6 days, 23 of the Ursuline College Community (alumnae, students, staff & friends of the College) will set out on a 17-day excursion through Italy. The planning of the trip started over a year ago and it’s hard to believe that we departure in less than a week. The trip includes; Amalfi, Pompeii, Sorrento, Rome, Orvieto, Assisi, Siena, Florence, San Gimignano and Venice. The journey will showcase ancient sites and ruins, priceless art, outstanding cuisine and unique lodging.
Throughout the trip, travelers will blog, showcasing their individual perspectives and photos. As the Alumnae Director, I am extremely excited to begin the trip and experience this with fellow alumnae, students & friends of Ursuline & St. John College.
