Kara Platt is an Assistant Professor in the Nursing department at Frostburg State University and serves as the pre-nursing coordinator. She teaches online and face to face courses at FSU. She earned her bachelor’s in nursing at Shenandoah University, and her Masters in Health Services Leadership and Management in nursing along with a teaching certificate in nursing from University of Maryland.  

Professor Platt has maintained her clinical skills working as a labor and delivery room nurse for Western Maryland Heath System.  She also served as the nursing recruiter for the RN-BSN program at FSU prior to transitioning into the assistant professor role.

Professor Platt completed her Master’s degree online and views online learning as great option for students to continue their education while maintaining employment and life commitments.  Online education is unique because it can bring students from all over the country that have different perspectives into one course where students can learn from each other’s experiences and cultures. Professor Platt hopes to encourage, mentor, and guide students through their education and as they transition into their new roles after graduation.
