He also served during Iraqi Freedom in a mental health nursing role.
Glenn was inducted into the Sigma Theta Tau in December 2016 and actively participates in the chapter’s induction ceremonies each semester. He also received nursing excellence awards during his service in the U.S. army as a commissioned officer.
Glenn’s teaching philosophy is to encourage each student’s active involvement which, subsequently, will maximize their learning opportunities in the nursing clinical setting by providing a comfortable, relaxed, low anxiety evoking environment that will cultivate each student’s ability to learn. He believes in treating students like adults, providing them guidance when needed while ultimately fostering their independence.
