Since then, the college has obtained authorization from the Higher Learning Commission to offer additional graduate, associate, and bachelor’s degrees in healthcare to meet the needs of the region.
In the fall of 2002, the College received approval from the Ohio Board of Regents, the Ohio Board of Nursing, and the Higher Learning Commission to offer the college’s Associate of Science in Nursing Program at a new location in Youngstown, Ohio at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital facilities.
Reflecting its geographic reach and advances in distance education, the College name was changed in August of 2011 from Mercy College of Northwest Ohio to Mercy College of Ohio.
Today, Mercy College is sponsored by Mercy Health as it continues the mission of healthcare education through land-based and online classes in a variety of fields, inspired by the legacy sponsorship of the Sisters of Mercy, the Sisters of Charity of Montréal (Grey Nuns), and the Sisters of Humility of Mary.
