The professional nursing program at Fisher College is dedicated to the Registered Nurse learner who is committed to acquiring new knowledge and skills for practice. Our graduates will be prepared to face the changing healthcare culture and be leaders in the nursing profession. The nursing program incorporates an approach to learning that recognizes the uniqueness of every adult learner as well as the educational and practice accomplishments each student acquired prior to enrolling in the nursing program.
The curriculum is developed to recognize the RN’s existing knowledge and skills while simultaneously providing a foundation for new knowledge in informatics and information literacy, healthcare economics, research, population-based practice, and leadership. With this foundation, graduates will be ready to contribute to improved clinical practice outcomes, new care-delivery methodologies, and/or further study in graduate school.
Faculty and students have shared responsibility in the
teaching/learning process that takes place in classroom, hybrid, and/or online
environments. Faculty deliver the nursing program using flexible teaching
strategies that promote students’ self-development and advancement. Recognizing
the diversity in student perspectives, faculty shape educational outcomes
through learning activities of dialogue, debate, and collaboration. Nursing courses will be offered in a blended format, online and in classroom, at both the Brockton Hospital School of Nursing and Fisher College Brockton location. General education courses are offered online.
