Disa A. Seymour, M.S., RNC-MNN, RNC-LRN

Assistant Professor of Nursing

Disa began teaching with SUNY Plattsburgh as a full-time faculty member in the Fall of 2023. As an ASN graduate of Clinton Community College in 2012, she began her nursing career working at Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital in the Women and Children’s Center (WCC) as a maternal newborn nurse. She expanded her skill set by training as a primary nursery nurse and then later to labor and delivery. After obtaining her master’s degree in 2019, Disa transitioned to leadership as the clinical education manager for WCC. In late 2020, she then accepted a position as the unit director/nurse manager for WCC where she influenced and led many significant changes, including the initiation of the transition to a new model of care. Disa made the decision to join SUNY Plattsburgh in 2023 to dedicate herself entirely to academia and the enrichment and development of future nurses. Additionally, from 2016 on, Disa has served as an adjunct clinical instructor for North County Community College and Clinton Community College, also holding a position as the nursing skills lab learning resource coordinator for CCC from 2016–2019. 

Personal Interests

My family is the center of my world — spending time with my husband and our three children is what I love most. Together, we enjoy traveling and experiencing memorable adventures. Each summer we look forward to spending our time at our camp, where days boating on the lake are followed by nights around the campfire. Two of my most loyal friends and companions are my Golden Retrievers, Huck and Ollie, who bring me endless joy and happiness. 

Academic Philosophy

The development of the next generation of nurses is what drives my passion and desire to be an educator. I believe that my role is to support all learners while enhancing and nurturing their growth. My objective as an educator is to inspire and motivate all students to develop their own learning interests and critical thinking skills. It is essential to me that my students experience a learner-centered environment where they can explore their own passion, obtain knowledge and develop their skills with supportive and collaborative instruction.
