Mercy College Banner Installed at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital
Since the Youngstown location of Mercy College of Ohio (Mercy College) opened in 2003, it has consistently enrolled high quality students and made a great impact on the community. Of the 433 graduates from the Youngstown location, 91% work in the greater Mahoning Valley helping to address the shortage of Registered Nurses in the area. Interim Dean of Mercy College's Nursing Division, Patricia McAllen PhD, RN, CNE, says, "The overwhelming majority of our graduates choose to work at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital but as a Registered Nurse they can literally find employment wherever they choose to live.

Supporting the Study of Nursing to a ‘Hire’ Degree
Erin Hennessey, DNP, APRN, FNP-C, Associate Program Chair of the RN to BSN Online Completion Program at Mercy College of Ohio, understands the emotional and physical demands of going to nursing school as well as anyone. She joined Mercy College after earning her bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. It was this intense academic experience that ‘put her in the shoes’ of the students she works with every day. “I did a completion program myself, and I did it with two kids, a husband and a fulltime job,” said Hennessey. “So I do completely understand the challenges that come along with having multiple responsibilities, but also, wanting to take that ‘next step’ professionally to open up new doors.”Continue Reading
