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%.
If your considering nursing as a career, you will be glad to learn that Mercy College provides multiple paths to becoming a registered nurse.
The Mercy ASN program includes a more hands approach that integrates students into clinicals from the first semester they are admitted to the program.
In comparison, the Mercy BSN program uses a concept-based approach that emphasizes nursing content across the lifespan and across clinical settings.
The great news, is that for those who select the ASN path and later choose to earn a BSN, Mercy College also offers a 100% online RN to BSN program, allowing registered nurses to work and study while completing their bachelor’s degree. It may take longer to complete, but you most likely won’t be a full time student either, and you may be able to take advantage of your employer's tuition reimbursement to assist paying for your BSN.
