Mercy College Banner Installed at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital

Since the Youngstown location of Mercy College of Ohio (Mercy College) opened in 2003, it has consistently enrolled high quality students and made a great impact on the community. Of the 433 graduates from the Youngstown location, 91% work in the greater Mahoning Valley helping to address the shortage of Registered Nurses in the area. Interim Dean of Mercy College's Nursing Division, Patricia McAllen PhD, RN, CNE, says, "The overwhelming majority of our graduates choose to work at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital but as a Registered Nurse they can literally find employment wherever they choose to live. We are so pleased students can get a quality education, graduate and then  and graduates can find employment where they want to live, learn, and work."
