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. We are so pleased students can get a quality education, graduate and then and graduates can find employment where they want to live, learn, and work."
To promote educational opportunities in the area, a new 35ft high by 20ft wide banner with information about Mercy College was installed on Thursday, January 21 on the Cardiac Rehab Building of St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital that houses Mercy College's Youngtown location.
"We want the community to know that they can prepare for a great career right here - close to home," says Dr. McAllen.
