Assistant Professor Janice Summers joined the nursing faculty at BMCC in 2013, and brings to the classroom insights gained from over 30 years working as a project manager focused on nurse education; a nurse manager focused on acute nursing care, and a Registered Nurse (RN) specializing in neurosurgery and neuromedicine.
Professor Summers teaches advanced medical nursing in the nursing program at BMCC, and supervises nursing majors as they complete their rotations at Bellevue Hospital Center and in NYSIM, the City University of New York/NYU Langone Medical Center, where they work in simulated scenaria with lifelike computerized mannequins, acquiring skills to apply in medical emergencies such as cardiac and respiratory arrests, injuries from natural disasters and more.
Passionate about helping aspiring nurses reach their personal and professional goals, Professor Summers has worked in Liverpool, England as a Project Manager in the Education Division of the Cheshire Merseyside Health Authority and as a Practice Educator at the brain and spinal injury unit in the Walton Center for Neurology and Neurosurgery. This work supporting the professional development of nurses led to her commitment to nursing education at the college level, and after gaining two master’s degrees in England; one in education and one in nursing, she is now pursuing a doctoral degree in Nursing with a dissertation on faculty’s role in nursing student retention, at the CUNY Graduate Center.
