Susan L. Glodstein, DNP, RN, PMHNP-BC, PMHCNS-BC, has been a psychiatric nurse for over 30 years and a nurse practitioner for 24 years. Her primary research interest is related to suicide prevention, however, she is passionate about educating professionals and the public on mental wellness and using non-stigmatizing language when addressing mental health issues.

In her private practice, Dr. Glodstein partners with patients over the age of 18 to make a plan for improved mental and physical wellbeing. Prior to GW Dr. Glodstein was program director of the psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner program at Stony Brook University, SUNY. Her other teaching experiences were with undergraduate nursing students in a traditional bachelor's program and RNs obtaining their bachelor's degree.

Some of her activities outside of teaching include mentoring, serving on campus-wide committees to promote mental health, serving on the faculty senate and being a statewide senator, directing continuing professional development, and co-chairing an international professional organization’s annual conference.
