Ray McLean

Ray McLean is a full-time RN at Strong Memorial Hospital where he is the Injury Prevention and Outreach Coordinator for The Kessler Trauma Center. He also works as a part-time paramedic at Mercy Flight Central and Irondequoit Ambulance. The married father of three also volunteers as a baseball coach and is a board member for Penfield Youth Football.

Somehow, in between all of that, he has managed to make time to further his education and is a current student in Fisher’s Online RN-to-BS in Nursing program.

Ray said he chose Fisher because of the Wegmans School of Nursing’s reputation and because of his initial outreach to the College, which he said was welcoming and very personal.

And, with a schedule likes Ray’s, the online coursework and flexible schedule have made it work for him.

Perhaps Ray’s favorite thing about the program is that he doesn’t feel like just a number or a statistic; rather, he feels like a student who can better himself and in turn, contribute to the College’s reputation. 

Ray won’t slow down after he completes the program, and credits Fisher for helping him believe that he can achieve any goal he puts his heart into.
