Nursing Faculty

Dedicated Faculty Mentors

School of Nursing Faculty

The faculty mentors in CalSouthern’s School of Nursing are skilled nursing professionals with experience across a wide variety of leadership and senior education positions in an array of healthcare settings. In addition, they are highly credentialed and dedicated educators.

You will appreciate this dual, academic and professional nursing experience as you work one-on-one with your faculty mentor for each course. They will be there to answer any questions you may have about the course material. Perhaps even more important, they will also be able to help you take the concepts that you learn and apply them to real-world issues that arise in today’s nursing practice.

They understand the challenges you face in your practice; they’ve been there.

Faculty mentors are positive, encouraging and responsive, and they are available to you via phone, email or Skype.

We think you’ll agree that one-on-one faculty mentoring is an effective, efficient and enjoyable way to learn.

Fisher’s first position as a registered nurse was at Maplewood Care and Rehabilitation in Amesbury, MA, as well as Privatus Care Solutions, a home-care agency in Burlington, MA. Within his first year of employment, he served on a search committee for the vice president of education position at Hallmark Health System.
