Arkansas Nurse Receives National Nursing Association’s Excellence Award
Margaret Glasgow Accepts AWHONN Award for Community Service
Washington, DC, June 13, 2016 – The Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) today presented its 2016 Award of Excellence in Community Service to Margaret Glasgow, BSN, RNC-OB, for her impact on community and rural hospitals. The award was presented at the AWHONN national Convention in Grapevine, Texas.
Each year, AWHONN presents its Award of Excellence in Community Service to an AWHONN member with an outstanding history of individual contributions to promote women’s or newborn’s health in a community and to reflect AWHONN’s mission and standards through their work in the community. Winners have made contributions to obstetric and neonatal nursing.
Ms. Glasgow is the clinical services manager at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences’ (UAMS) Center for Distance Health. In that capacity, she facilitates education for rural hospitals and clinicians across the state of Arkansas. With many rural hospitals not having dedicated labor and delivery staff, she teaches nurses who work in the emergency department or the intensive care unit to assist in the care of pregnant and laboring women. She previously worked as a staff nurse, a preceptor for new graduate nurses, and with an emergency team that transported high-risk pregnant women via helicopter to Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
“Ms. Glasgow provides educational opportunities to nurses who might not otherwise have them,” said AWHONN’s Chief Executive Officer, Lynn Erdman, MN, RN, FAAN. “Her devotion to the care of all women, regardless of where they live, is unwavering.”
An AHWONN member since 2000, Ms. Glasgow is Fetal Heart Monitoring Instructor Trainer and the previous section chair for AWHONN Arkansas. She earned her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing at UAMS in Little Rock.
