My name is Ryan Weisz and I currently work as an EMT responding to 911 emergency calls for Bayshore Brightwaters Ambulance, Brentwood Legion Ambulance and Medford Ambulance. Additionally, I serve as the second Assistant Chief of Exchange Ambulance of the Islips, where I assist in overseeing daily operators within the volunteer agency. As the COVID pandemic is primarily a respiratory illness, my time studying in the respiratory therapy program at NCC has prepared me to better serve my patients in this emergency setting.
My knowledge in pathophysiology and pharmacology for various respiratory illness has given prepared me to handle patients with COVID-19. One of my favorite quotes actually comes Dr. Dorian on the TV show "Scrubs:" You should consider yourself lucky if you even occasionally get to make someone, anyone, feel a little better.
I am a marketing major and will graduate in 2025. After a rough start at a large four-year university, I chose to attend Nassau Community College. It has a nice campus, a great community, and besides — my mom went here! My best experience so far has been my in-class presentations.

I transferred to NCC to pursue a degree in Nursing. After some sudden life-changing events I needed to be back home with my family. Nassau was the best educational opportunity for me, especially considering my chosen career path. One of my favorite experiences at the College so far has been forming a sense of community with my peers.

My major is Biology and I am in my second year at NCC. I originally came to Nassau Community College because of the smaller class sizes and proximity to my home but the terrific faculty and flexible class schedules are great as well. As a science major, I would have to say one of my favorite experiences at Nassau has been the hands-on work that we do in the labs during biology classes.
