Nancy Glass, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN, was recently named the Independence Foundation Chair in Nursing Education at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing (JHSON). Glass is known for being a researcher, clinician, educator, and public health advocate, as well as professor and associate director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health.
Dean Patricia Davidson, PhD, MEd, RN, FAAN, tells Newswise.com, “Dr. Glass has made a tremendous impact on our school and the health of women and families worldwide. She is one of the most successful nurses globally, and awarding this chair to her is an appropriate recognition of her stellar career.”
The endowment was created in 1989 by the Independence Foundation of Philadelphia for an academic chair that could help nursing programs engage in long-term planning and support programs for education. Glass has helped further excellence in education at JHSON by serving as director of the MSN/MPH Public Health Nursing program, coordinator of the Coverdell Peace Corps Fellows program, and holding a joint appointment in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
Glass has used her career to improve the health of women and families on a national and global level. She tells Newswise.com, “Educational opportunities are crucial to building and supporting future generations of nurses. This is an exciting honor to be able to help lead the school in facilitating scholarship and the power of knowledge.”
