A nursing major at Mercy College of Health Sciences is a challenging and busy degree to complete, especially the Bachelor's program. I am currently in the BSN program and am required to have a minimum GPA, I am held to higher standards outside of school, and I am required to attend class and be punctual. All of these things are easy for me because of the type of person that I am but it is still good to be held accountable now so that when we are in the real world of nursing, we already know and have experience. The clinical facilities are great and have awesome professors and instructors to help us. We also have a unique opportunity since we are partnered with Mercy Hospital of Des Moines so it is likely that we will be able to get a job their upon graduation or somewhere within the CHI Health system.
