The list is compiled to bring recognition to skilled and respected professors and assistant professors of nursing from across the country, with the hope that nursing students will be inspired by the achievements of professionals in the field.

“I am humbled to be named one of the top 100 nursing professors in the USA for 2012,” Zhan said. “This award brings honor to the U of M and LSON, as our wonderful nursing faculty and staff work diligently each day to prepare our students – dreamers, thinkers, and doers – to meet the ever-changing needs of health care.”

Zhan is a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing. She has published more than 90 articles and several books. Her 2009 book Asian Americans Voices: Engaging, Empowering, Enabling has been used in a number of disciplines.
