If you think you know Mercy College of Health Sciences – an institution spanning 115 years of educating health science professionals – we might surprise you.
Our students are among the best and brightest, coming from many different backgrounds, cultures and experiences. They become nurses, physical therapist assistants, radiologic technologists, surgical technologists, nuclear medicine technologists, medical assistants, diagnostic medical sonographers, paramedics and leaders in healthcare administration.
With the addition of our Bachelor of Science in Health Science, we are now helping to prepare students for the many health science careers requiring graduate study. In its first three years, our pre-graduate-study program has successfully placed 88 percent of our students in graduate education programs leading to careers in medicine, education, and public health.
We’re blessed with faculty members who understand and live our core values – knowledge, reverence, integrity, compassion, and excellence – and are committed to creating a caring environment conducive to learning. They are highly motivated and skilled healthcare practitioners comfortable in the latest technology and evidenced-based practices in their specialty area of healthcare and skilled educators ready to help you learn. Our fulltime liberal arts and sciences faculty members are Ph.D.-prepared and adept at integrating their subject matter into a comprehensive health science curriculum.
Our alumni go everywhere and are among the best in their field. They embark upon healthcare careers across the nation and around the world. They also stay right here in Iowa to take care of those within our own community.
