Offered in partnership with 2U, Inc. (Nasdaq: TWOU), a global leader in education technology, Fisher Nursing Online will allow nursing students to choose from a variety of specializations, including psychiatric mental health, adult gerontology primary care, adult gerontology acute care, and family-focused care.

“We are excited to be able to offer graduate nursing students a program that matches not only their career aspirations, but their lifestyle,” said Dr. Patricia Gatlin, dean of the School of Nursing. “We are proud to offer the best in graduate nursing education with a partner like 2U.”

Fisher Nursing Online will match the quality and rigor of the Wegmans School of Nursing’s esteemed on-campus program and will confer the same degree. The curriculum, which can be completed at a full- or part-time pace, fuses academic and clinical coursework to best equip professional nurses with the theoretical and clinical experience necessary to lead change, promote health, and improve access to quality care.

The first cohort of students in the online pathway will begin classes in fall 2021.
