Deborah Jo Kummer

Deborah Jo Kummer was part of Fisher’s inaugural RN to BSN Online program.

A full-time nurse, Deborah completed her undergraduate studies at Sullivan Community College, the State University of New York at Brockport, and Monroe Community College, and started working in 1981.

She was motivated to enroll in the program for a few reasons, and she was energized by the coursework. Knowing some of the Fisher faculty on a personal level was certainly helpful as well.

Deborah says that although she was challenged by the technology incorporated into the program—much of which was not available when she originally studied nursing-- the support she received from the program’s faculty and staff made things “just come together.” For instance, she especially loved the online discussion boards, which allowed her to learn from people of all ages and walks of life.

Deborah’s favorite thing about Fisher was the premium placed on learning here. She feels as if “the process is just as important as the end product,” a philosophy that sets Fisher’s offerings apart from other programs.
