Zenith Khan, FNP, BS '14, MSN '18

Award Year: 2020

In the words of her nominator: 

When I think of nursing excellence, I think of Zenith. I will never forget the first day I walked into N464 Pediatric Nursing and was greeted by the TA Zenith. She created such a warm and welcoming environment for myself and other students within the class, and provided such a conducive learning environment. She went above and beyond for myself and my classmates. I will never forget when Zenith said “I really want you all to learn and practice these skills and knowledge learned, I struggled with skills as a new grad and I am going to make sure you don't.” This kind of concern for my knowledge and skills quickly told me that she truly cared about my learning and my future. She taught me to think beyond the patient and see the person behind the term “patient.” Zenith is compassionate for all individuals regardless of socioeconomic status or other factors. She acts ethically, is highly skilled, and has a positive attitude that is unmatched. Zenith personifies a Rising Bruin both in the classroom and outside of the classroom.
