Assistant Professor Maureen Eisenstein, a psychiatric mental health and clinical nurse specialist in Fisher’s RN to BSN program, is a born educator and as such is engaged in the world far beyond the classroom door.
She goes where her interests take her, and next May it will be to the Dominican Republic with Fisher nursing students completing their practice experience for their Population Health in the Community course. “Being part of the trips means so much to me,” Eisenstein says, grateful for the opportunities to collaborate on issues of social justice, education, health care, and human rights.
“Students can expect to have a life-changing experience,” she adds. “They experience how satisfying it can be to look outside themselves, to know that we are a global society, and that together we can make a difference.”
Eisenstein is a board member of Partnering People through Service (PPS), a nonprofit organization based in Plymouth. Its mission is to create partnerships between communities in need and service-learning volunteers in order to improve education and health care.
