Review Mercy College of Health Sciences
This school has been challenging but does a very good job at finding and hiring dedicated and experienced professionals as professors. They are there to support the students through their schooling and will go above and beyond to make sure you succeed. I was a transfer student here after my sophomore year of college and I couldn't have asked for a better school to transfer to! The small class sizes really help make the experience that much better.
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.
The value of a degree from this school is very high because it is a health sciences college. The health sciences field, especially nursing, needs more people to come onto the workforce. A bachelor's degree in nursing is becoming the more preferred and sometimes required degree for employers and getting one from Mercy College of Health Sciences and using it, especially in the Des Moines area, will most likely warrant a good job for graduating students.
