Barbara C. Glynn

Associate Professor of Nursing

Director of Education and Administration, Nursing Laboratory

Dr. Glynn has practiced as a staff nurse on a cardiac unit, a school nurse, a parish nurse, and currently as nursing faculty. She began her career at the Associate degree level and practiced as a cardiac nurse. After realizing she enjoyed the teaching aspect of nursing, Dr. Glynn returned to school and obtained a bachelor's degree and began teaching at the Associate degree program from which she had graduated. After becoming board certified as a Medical-Surgical nurse, Dr. Glynn then began to pursue her Master’s in Nursing Education in order to continue teaching part-time. Realizing that teaching full-time was her ultimate goal, she went on to a doctoral degree. Dr. Glynn became interested in simulation at this point, and has been part of several teams to develop, implement, and publish articles and case studies on this topic. Her other area of interest is in interprofessional education (IPE), in which Dr. Glynn has helped develop, implement, and publish several interprofessional activities. She is currently an IPE Fellow at Quinnipiac. In addition, Dr. Glynn is the Director of Education and Administration for the Nursing labs at Quinnipiac, overseeing curriculum in the undergraduate nursing laboratory courses. Dr. Glynn is a member of the Nursing Honor Society Sigma Theta Tau, the International Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning, and her regional Parish Nurse program.
