    Dr. Zalon co-edited “Nurses Making Policy: From Bedside to Boardroom,” second edition. The book is a practical guide written to help advanced students and nurse leaders develop health policy competencies to advocate for patients from the bedside to the larger political arena. Dr. Zalon received her bachelor’s degree from Duke University and her master’s and doctoral degrees from New York University. She has worked for the University since 1988.
