President’s Welcome

Mercy College of Ohio

Dear Mercy College Students:

Welcome to Mercy College of Ohio! We are so glad that you are a part of the proud tradition of Mercy Education.  All of the faculty and staff are committed to your educational success.

Mercy College is a Catholic institution that educates students in the tradition of the Religious Sisters of Mercy and the Sisters of Charity of Montreal (Grey Nuns) and is an affiliate of Bon Secours Mercy Health, one of the nation’s largest and most respected healthcare systems. In 2018, the College celebrated its 100th anniversary of preparing healthcare professionals in the Mercy tradition. Also in 2018, the College launched its second graduate program, the Master in Health Administration, and an Associate in Science in Health Sciences.  Most recently, in the summer of 2021, the College began a Master of Physician Assistant Studies and an Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

The faculty and staff of the College seek to inspire students to a commitment of lifelong learning and social responsibility in the spirit of the Mercy heritage and values. Mercy College is committed to providing students with a high-quality education that prepares them for their careers.

Students in clinical programs graduate as proficient, knowledgeable, and culturally competent professionals. Graduates of nonclinical programs are knowledgeable in the administrative functions of healthcare and are prepared to provide high-quality service in a caring manner. The certificate programs prepare students to work in specialized fields.
