Barnes-Jewish associate chief nurse is grateful for her time in the U.S. Navy

Maggie Johnson Glover, RN, MSN, PhD, joined Barnes-Jewish Hospital earlier this year as associate chief nurse executive. She supports the hospital’s patient care services operations with a focus on organizational high reliability — in clinical improvement initiatives, leader development, and staff recruitment and retention.

Johnson Glover also served in the U.S. Navy for 27 years. She says BJC’s culture embraces the knowledge she gained and the lessons she learned while on active duty. “I feel so welcomed, engaged and appreciated here,” she says.

One of the lessons she learned — that remains with her today — is the responsibility of leadership. “While in the Navy, I was told from day one, ‘You are commissioned as an officer and nurse, but you are a leader first.’ I never have forgotten that,” she says. “The Navy helped me lead and live the mission, while honoring the voices and valuing the contributions of those on my team. People’s lives depended on me understanding those principles.”

Johnson Glover has held leadership positions in national and international locations, including at Naval hospitals in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Guam and a medical clinic in Korea; the University of Maryland and Howard University; Navy Medicine Headquarters in Washington, D.C.; and Sinai Hospital in Baltimore. After serving 26 years in the U.S. Navy, Johnson Glover retired as a Captain in March 2012. Prior to her retirement, she was the director and lead inspector for the Navy and Marine Corps Human Research Protection Program and a special advisor to the Surgeon General of the Navy.

Johnson Glover answers a few questions about her service and her career at BJH:

Q: How does your military experience help you make medicine better at BJC?
A: In a military environment, it’s standard practice that every three years you move to a different hospital culture and a different community. So, you learn that each experience helps you to be more connected to people, so that your daily focus is giving your best and making a valued difference. That’s how the wellness of a community is improved, and that’s how you make nursing and medicine better at BJC.

Q: What advice do you have for a veteran interested in employment at BJC?
A: You will love the experience, you will be valued, and your military service will be respected.

Q: What do you miss most about your military career?
A: Two things: the commitment and the engagement. There is a level of oneness that happens when you serve in the military, wearing the uniform, being all over the world, moving mountains, and having each other’s back no matter what happens. I will always have immeasurable gratitude for serving in the United States Navy.
