My Fisher education has been one of the best experiences of my life and has prepared me for so much. I have gotten many offers and compliments before people even meet me when they find out that I am a Fisher grad. ”

As a nurse, you realize what you know and what you do make a difference in people's lives. The work is its own reward. It's tremendously challenging, it's never boring, and there's privilege to it. Nursing is not what I do...it's who I am. ”
