Glenn Cochrane
MSN, CRNA
Instructor

 

Glenn Cochrane, CRNA joined the Twin Oaks team in 2017. After a personal tragedy in 1996 involving the loss of his best friend in high school during an auto racing accident, Glenn was inspired to a life dedicated to the medical field. It was during this life event and while assisting the flight crew on the side of the highway that Glenn decided to gain the education, training, and experience necessary to become a flight nurse.  Two years later while completing his training as a paramedic, he witnessed an impressive display of skill and command as the Anesthesia provider who was training him to intubate received and saved a highly critical patient from the emergency department. Thus, his passion for anesthesia began. During the next 15 years Glenn worked as a paramedic, flight nurse, and in every emergent and critical care setting spanning the life span from neonatal to adult.  Since the completion of his anesthesia training Glenn has worked independently in every setting from office-based anesthesia to being the solo provider in critical access hospitals to large tertiary centers. Glenn currently provides service, education, and training to over 20 facilities throughout northeast Texas.
