The award, introduced in 1999, is given biennially to a practicing nurse with at least 10 years of nursing experience in direct care, education, management, or research. Nominees must have achieved significant impact internationally.

Glass' research and practice expertise in public health, health disparities, and intimate partner violence reflect the focus of the school and university on global health threats, particularly in developing countries. Her research centers on clinical care and intervention in the areas of violence prevention and health disparities.

The award was presented during the recent ICN Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
