80% of Americans Rate Nurses Highest on Honesty, Ethical Standards - Gallup

For those of you studying to become a nurse, feel great about entering a respected field of professionals who have set the ethical bar extremely high!


Gallup polled Americans in December, 2014 and results show that "since 2005, at least 80% of Americans have said nurses have high ethics and honesty." Two other medical professions -- medical doctors and pharmacists -- tie this year for second place at 65%.



Can I afford Mercy College?

Our team of full-time Financial Aid professionals have successfully collaborated with hundreds of Mercy College students and alumni to develop personalized financial aid packages.

The first step to receiving financial aid is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Mercy College's school code 006273. Once a student receives his or her FAFSA award notice, usually during late spring or summer, it becomes more clear how the student can pay for their education.

Don't forget to inquire with your organization's human resource office to determine if your benefits include tuition reimbursement, you might be pleasantly surprised.

According to Financial Aid Director Lisa Croat "83% of students attending Mercy College receive some type of financial aid, many of whom receive assistance from federal and state programs."

Does Mercy College have a study abroad program?

By immersing themselves in a Mexican community, Mercy College students learn how to be better prepared, more compassionate healthcare professionals. 

Sisters of Mercy Institute Justice Team Leader to visit Des Moines

One of the best parts of my job as justice education coordinator for the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas is visiting the campuses of colleges and universities and engaging with students, faculty and staff around issues that we all are passionate about. So I’m thrilled with the opportunity to be part of the Mercy College of Health Sciences’ Faith & Healing speaker series next week.

There’s so much I want to share with the Mercy college community, beginning with an overview of the Sisters of Mercy’s commitment to serving persons who are poor and vulnerable. That’s manifested in so many ways, from founding homeless shelters, food pantries and other social service ministries around the country to speaking out against budget cuts to these very programs and in support of increases in the minimum wage to give parents the dignity of being able to care for their children through their own hard work.
