About the Wegmans School of Nursing

The science of nursing practice is enhanced at the Wegmans School of Nursing by Fisher’s values-based education rooted in the philosophy of the Basilian Fathers: "Teach me goodness, discipline, and knowledge."

Our students integrate clinical knowledge with decision-making skills, communications expertise, and compassion to improve patient care in a variety of health care settings.

Passionate Faculty

This is not only the tradition of the Fisher nurse, but the model of education that we are convinced best serves a nursing professional practicing in today’s world of challenges and discovery.

Fisher’s nursing faculty are all practicing nurses who model the behavior, the passion, and the commitment required to deliver exceptional patient care.

Of the faculty members in the Wegmans School of Nursing, the majority have doctoral degrees and recent or current clinical practice experience.

All of the faculty at Fisher have embraced a set of learning outcomes. These student-learning outcomes were developed by the faculty and pertain to the following broad areas of learning:

  • Inquiry and Analysis
  • Ethical Reasoning
  • Written, Oral, and Visual Communication
  • Citizenship and Civic Engagement
  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  • Content and Discourse of Field
