Rydal Park woman receives nursing award

The days of starched uniforms and white caps are gone, but in the 60 years since she donned that cap, Joan Randolph’s enthusiasm for the nursing profession has not waned one bit.

Randolph, a resident of Rydal Park in Abington, recently received the Jefferson College of Nursing Alumni Special Achievement Award, which “recognizes a nursing alumna who has made a significant contribution to the nursing profession in the areas of education, research and community service,” said Beth Ann Swan, dean of Jefferson College of Nursing.
