Philadelphia, PA, December 9, 2010 — Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions Associate Dean Mary Ellen Smith Glasgow, PhD, RN, ACNS-BC is the lead author on one of three papers that influenced content of the much heralded Institute of Medicine/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Report on Future of Nursing. (National League For Nursing Press, December, 2010).
The IOM report, the result of a two-year initiative on the future of nursing, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is in circulation from the White House, throughout Congress, extending to the reaches of university presidents and deans, as leaders plan to implement the Report’s recommendations.
Glasgow emphasized the desire for nurses from academic and practice settings to come together for curricular development and delineated specific needs for technology-infused education, transdisciplinary approaches to care and translational research.
An associate professor and an associate dean for undergraduate programs in master’s of science in nursing programs, and continuing nursing education, Glasgow was selected to attend the prestigious Bryn Mawr College and HERS, Mid-America Summer Institute for women in Higher Education Administration. She is the recipient of several awards in both teaching and practice, has published more than 45 articles, delivered over 100 national and international presentations and is on the editorial board for Holistic Nursing Practice and Oncology Nursing Forum. She is a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Executive Nurse Fellow and a trustee of Princeton HealthCare System. Her research interests include bone marrow donation in minorities and leadership development in nursing education and practice.
