Mercy College increases fall associate degree nursing class
Mercy College of Ohio is answering the nursing shortage call by increasing the number of students admitted into its associate degree nursing program. Both the daytime and evening/weekend programs will accept about 15% more students. Mercy College has a strong 100 year history of educating and preparing nurses and is a top producer of pre-licensure nursing graduates in Ohio. Mercy College graduates make the eighth highest salary in the state with an average annual salary at $51,100*. The associate degree program is especially appealing to some as it can be completed in five consecutive semesters. Mercy College offers multiple paths to become a nurse with a day or evening/weekend associate degree program and a bachelor’s degree program. Applications are also being accepted for an accelerated BSN program that will begin in 2020.
Those who have an RN license can continue their education in the RN-BSN program and for those who have a BSN, Mercy College offers a Master of Science in Nursing. It’s a great time to be a nurse as the demand for RNs has reached levels not seen in 80 years.
