Academic Profile

Dr. Annie Rohan is a dual-certified Nurse Practitioner whose academic achievements rest on the foundation of a 25-year clinical career caring for critically and chronically ill infants and children and high-risk families.

Dr. Rohan has been awarded more than $10 million in federal grant funding to develop scalable, sustainable educational programs that address the shortage of primary care providers in medically underserved regions. These programs have engaged dozens of students drawn from neighborhoods such as Brooklyn and Bronx, through graduate education, and back to their communities where they collectively impact thousands of families as primary care providers, healthcare mentors, and role models.  She has studied and published several papers on developing evidence-based practice and writing competencies in healthcare students.

Rohan has served in leadership roles for many national organizations.  She is currently the co-chair of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioner’s Pediatric Special Interest Group, a member of the March of Dimes National Nurse Advisory Council, and a member of the American Academy of Nursing’s Expert Panel for Maternal and Infant Health and Global Nursing and Health.  She has also served as an alumni advisor for Jonas Philanthropies and as vice-chair of the ANA Individual Member Division.

Rohan’s publishes a nationally disseminated bi-monthly practice column and is the author of dozens of peer-reviewed articles.  She is Associate Editor of MCN: The American Journal of Maternal Child Nursing, and Associate Editor for AWHONNâ?Ts Perinatal Nursing textbook (now in 5th ed.).

Rohan continues to enjoy a voluntary appointment in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Stony Brook University (SUNY) where she is a co-investigator of a successful, interdisciplinary NIH-funded R25 educational program pairing nursing and biomedical engineering students, and a health-sector mentor for the Long Island Biomedical Incubator (LIBMI).
