  • “Most of my classes were directly related to the career I was obtaining. My favorite part of my Mercy education was going to clinical and having the opportunity to learn new skills! I felt well prepared for the NCLEX. My Mercy College experience prepared me for my current RN position by teaching us the values of nursing more then tasks!”
