Supporting the Study of Nursing to a ‘Hire’ Degree

Erin Hennessey, DNP, APRN, FNP-C, Associate Program Chair of the RN to BSN Online Completion Program at Mercy College of Ohio, understands the emotional and physical demands of going to nursing school as well as anyone. She joined Mercy College after earning her bachelor’s, master’s and doctorate degrees at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. It was this intense academic experience that ‘put her in the shoes’ of the students she works with every day. “I did a completion program myself, and I did it with two kids, a husband and a fulltime job,” said Hennessey. “So I do completely understand the challenges that come along with having multiple responsibilities, but also, wanting to take that ‘next step’ professionally to open up new doors.”
