Patricia Glidden | Professional History

Patricia Glidden, CPNP, started her career at Boston Children's Hospital as a staff nurse in the Hemodialysis Unit. She became the kidney transplant coordinator at Boston Children's Hospital where she worked closely with both kidney donors and recipients in preparing for living-donor and deceased-donor kidney transplants and managed the outpatient end-stage renal disease and kidney transplant clinic. She completed her Master's degree in Nursing and Primary Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioner Program at Simmon's University in 2016.

During her academic studies she completed The Leadership Training in Neurodevelopment and related Disabilities (LEND) program at the Institute of Community Inclusion at Boston Children's Hospital. She transitioned to a career as a pediatric nurse practitioner in primary care at Martha Eliot where she became a clinician in the Adolescent Clinic and became the Asthma Specialist in both the Pediatric and Adolescent clinic. Additionally, she serves on the transition team that developed the clinic's transition policy and facilitates transition from adolescent to adult primary care.

Primary care allows me not only to care for children and adolescents when they are sick but to make an impact on their development and overall wellbeing, to see them emerge as healthy and productive young adults. Every interaction is an opportunity to share in their decision-making, create trust and build healthy relationships.
