Research:

The population of older adults is projected to grow to 72 million by 2030. People are living longer, but often with one or more chronic diseases.  Persistent pain remains undertreated, especially for older adults and ethnic minority groups.

Dr. Glover’s research focuses on pain in older adults, palliative and end-of-life care, and health disparities in pain.

Teaching:

Dr. Glover teaches undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of gerontological nursing, pain in older adults, palliative and end-of-life care, and research methods.

Service:

Dr. Glover received the Lois Knowles Award for Excellence in Gerontological Nursing and the Academic Award for Excellence in Research from the University of Florida in 2013.  Dr. Glover was a National Hartford Centers of Gerontological Nursing Excellence Pre-Doctoral Scholar and a Mayday Fund Awardee from 2011-2013.  In 2008, she was inducted into Sigma Theta Tau, the honor society of nursing.

Dr. Glover is a member of the American Pain Society, the Gerontological Society of America, the American Geriatrics Society, the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association, the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, and the National League for Nursing.

Area of expertise:

Dr. Glover is an Advanced Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Nurse (ACHPN) and Certified Pain Educator (CPE). She is an ANCC board-certified ARNP in Gerontological Nursing (GNP-BC) and Family Nursing (FNP-BC).

Education:

Dr. Glover received her BA in Anthropology from the University of Florida.  After switching careers to nursing, she received her BS in Nursing, MSN in Family Nursing, and PhD in Nursing Science from the University of Florida.  Dr. Glover received a post-Master’s certificate in Gerontological Nursing from the University of Massachusetts at Boston.
