Not only is Tina Fisher ’90 (Whitehall, Pa.) a nurse manager/case manager at MossRehab at Sacred Heart, she is actively involved in nursing organizations and her community.
In addition to managing a 14-bed inpatient unit, she is a camp nurse- volunteer for Camelot for Children, a nonprofit organization for chronically and terminally ill, handicapped or disabled children.
“I love to volunteer because it allows me to grow as a person, meet many great people and allows me to give back,” she said. “It makes me more appreciative of what I have and reminds me to not take anything for granted.”
Tina is also a Caritas Coach for the Watson Caring Science Institute.
“It is important for me to be active in the Watson Caring Science Institute because I gain knowledge and teach other nurses the importance of being caring toward patients,” she said.
Tina is no stranger to being active in the nursing profession. As a student at York College, she was a member of the Student Nurses’ Association of Pennsylvania.
“This experience made me grow professionally and realize the importance of being active in your nursing specialty,” she said.
Tina’s passion for her specialty, rehabilitation nursing, was sparked by her undergraduate clinicals at the Rehabilitation Hospital of York.
“The nurses taught me many of the skills that are required for nursing in a rehab setting,” she said.
Those hands-on experiences also gave her the confidence to be a caring nurse.
“York College will give you the knowledge and experiences to pursue a career in nursing,” she said. “The wonderful, amazing thing about nursing is that there are many paths you can take.”
