Duquesne Dean Inducted as NLN Academy of Nursing Education Fellow

Dr. Mary Ellen Glasgow, dean and professor of the Duquesne University School of Nursing, has been inducted into the National League for Nursing's (NLN) Academy of Nursing Education, with the credential of Fellow. She joins the academy's 202 fellows representing nursing schools and programs throughout the United States.

"It is an honor to be recognized by the National League for Nursing for my contributions to nursing education and be among other esteemed colleagues who have made important and demonstrable contributions to nursing education," said Glasgow, who was among just 22 inductees.

The NLN established the Academy of Nursing Education in 2007 to foster excellence in nursing education by recognizing and capitalizing on the wisdom of nurse educators who have made sustained and significant contributions to nursing education. In addition to providing leadership in nursing education and in the Academy of Nursing Education, fellows support the NLN vision to promote standards of excellence in nursing education, and they serve as important role models and resources for new educators and for those who aspire to become nurse educators.

Glasgow has incorporated the cooperative education model, envisioned and implemented the use of online courses, standardized patients, mobile technology, e-books and simulation in the nursing and undergraduate health professions curricula during her career. She was also responsible for the development and growth of one of the largest online nursing course offerings in the nation, and she recently developed the first-of-its-kind 5-year dual Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Biomedical Engineering Program at Duquesne University.

She was selected as a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Executive Nurse Fellow; was elected as a Fellow of the American Academy of Nursing; received a 2013 Distinguished Alumni Award from Gwynedd-Mercy University; and was presented with a 2010 College of Nursing Alumni Medallion from Villanova University. Glasgow has more than 69 publications, made more than 135 national and international presentations, and earned $2.1 million in funding. She co-authored two books, Role Development for Doctoral Advanced Nursing Practice, which earned the 2011 AJN Book of the Year Award, and Legal Issues Confronting Today's Nursing Faculty: A Case Study Approach, which was named the 2012 AJN Book of the Year Award.

"The National League for Nursing relies on these accomplished individuals as allies in our efforts to address the ongoing shortage of nurses and nurse educators," said Dr. Beverly A. Malone, chief executive officer of the NLN. "Nurse faculty and colleagues from other fields who contribute to excellence in nursing education and to the preparation of a nursing workforce that advances the health of the nation and the global community deserve this public recognition and the gratitude of all who are eager to elevate the status of the profession."
