Dr. Julie Fisher
Assistant Professor of Nursing

Why I Teach:

"I get excited about finding ways to explain information in a way that helps students reach that “ah-ha” moment. I also love knowing that what I do and how I do it touches and teaches so many future nurses."

Professional Activities

My area of expertise is Gerontology – the study of older adults. My Dissertation research focused on the Health and Wellbeing of Grandparents Raising their Grandchildren and I presented locally and nationally on this topic and others related to aging.

Most recently, in March 2011, I presented a poster entitled "Life Review and Analysis of Normal Aging in a Healthy, Community-Living Elder: Making Gerontology Real for Sophomore Nursing Students" in Albuquerque, NM.

I am a certified Gerontology nurse, serve as the faculty counselor for the Tau Beta Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International (nursing’s honor society) and serve on several college committees, including Strategic Planning and Faculty Personnel. I am currently developing two online courses for graduate nursing students; one in Gerontology and one in Advanced Pathophysiology.
