Malone has been chief executive officer of the National League for Nursing (NLN) since February 2007. She is among America’s most vocal leaders on the role of nursing in ensuring access to safe, quality, culturally competent care to diverse patient populations domestically and globally.

Under Malone’s guidance, the NLN has partnered with corporations, associations and foundations to advance the science of nursing education, increase diversity in nursing and nursing education, and advance excellence in care for seniors. In 2010, the year she was ranked 29th among the 100 Most Powerful People in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare magazine, Malone served on the Advisory Committee on Minority Health, a federal panel established to advise the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Malone earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Cincinnati in 1970, then received a master’s in psychiatric nursing and a doctorate in clinical psychology. Her distinguished career has included policy, education, administration and clinical practice. Malone has worked as a surgical staff nurse, clinical nurse specialist, director of nursing, and assistant administrator of nursing. During the 1980s she was dean of the School of Nursing at North Carolina A&T State University. In 1996, she was elected to two terms as president of the American Nurses Association, representing 180,000 nurses.

The Loewenberg School of Nursing Distinguished Lecture Series brings nationally renowned nursing leaders to the Mid-South for quality educational programs that promote professional nursing in academia and the practice setting.
