The National League for Nursing (NLN) will honor Dr. Lin Zhan, dean of the Loewenberg School of Nursing at the University of Memphis, with its Outstanding Leadership in Nursing and Education Award. The award will be presented Oct. 2 at the NLN’s annual education summit in Las Vegas.

“The faculty and staff of Loewenberg School are extremely proud of Dr. Lin Zhan as the recipient of theprestigious NLN Outstanding Leadership in Nursing and Education award,” said Dr. Linda Finch, associate dean. “Dr. Zhan’s contributions to the quality of life of older adults and ethnic minorities, health promotion for women and ethnic minorities, and diversity in higher education are exemplars of her commitment to raising the standards in nursing education, service and research.”

Zhan has demonstrated leadership through scholarly activities, having published more than 90 articles and contributed to 11 books. She is a member of the National Think Tank on Expanding Nurse Educator Diversity for the NLN, and since 2002 she has participated in the Expert Panel on Aging for the American Academy of Nursing.

Zhan is president of the Boston Institute of Management, providing healthcare consulting services to China. In 2007, she led the nursing education leadership and leadership delegation to China in the People to People Ambassador Program. This experience allows participants from the United States and China to share human, nursing, health, and environmental knowledge.
