In May, Prabha Sharan (’07), a charge nurse in post-op orthopedics at Stanford Hospital, was chosen by her peers as Unit Nurse of the Year!
“I was surprised by this honor, as my whole team is the best and so deserving of the recognition,” said Prabha. “I am one of the senior nurses on the unit, and this award means a lot because it was my fellow nurses who voted for me. The last two years have been especially challenging and now it feels like every day is a challenge; as nurses we pour our heart and soul into taking care of others.”
Prabha was raised from infancy at Sri Ram Ashram, India. Many visitors remember her playful nature. She came to the Mount Madonna Center when she was 15 and was very close to Baba Hari Dass (“Babaji”). After graduating from Mount Madonna School, she attended San Francisco State University where she earned a B.S. in nursing.
