Gwendolyn Olton landed her first job before walking across the stage, thanks to her clinical rotation experiences at Rochester General Hospital, St. Mary's, and the New York State Department of Health. She was also able to show valuable global experience from her undergraduate education, as she traveled with her professors and peers to Kenya in 2012 where she worked in makeshift clinics for underserved communities.

She started as a nurse coordinator for Residential Treatment Facilities at Hillside Children's Center and also worked as a care coordinator for Bay Creek Medical Group before joining Coordinated Care Services, inc. She said the Wegmans School of Nursing prepared her for the challenges of complex care management.

"I'm so happy I chose Fisher for a nursing degree. The professors are amazing educators with a passion for what they do. The clinical experiences were relevant and eye-opening, and the classes were engaging. It's an amazing program."
