4 College Student

Overall Experience: Some work to help you. Some don't care about you.

5 College Student

Academic Experience: Access to labs and dissections

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I love the school. A few teachers only read bullet points off of the board but I love the actual content and knowledge taught

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Some things I love about the program I am in where other things I am not sure what the point of them is.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class size is awesome you really get to know your teachers and other students.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: They were very accepting of transferring in all of the credits I had. I really appreciated this because the college is very expensive. Because of how small the college is, flexibiliy is limited but my counselor worked with me so I only have class twice a week so I can work other days.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: Job prospects are incredibly high because of networking done during clinicals.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class size is very small and the professors are actually nurses and nurse practitioners.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The college is directly affiliated with several hospitals and placement is very high.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Definitely one of the most thorough nursing programs available in the Midwest.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: An expensive school but definitely a much higher quality education than pursuing a nursing degree at a place like Kaplan or a community college.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have had no issues with scheduling classes or getting into a class that I needed at the time or day that I needed it. I have heard from other students that if you do have a conflict, you can speak with your academic advisor and they will do everything they can to make sure that you get into the class time or section that you need so that you can work around your work or home schedule and complete your degree in the amount of time expected.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: The professors that teach online classes make themselves very available whether it is through e-mail, phone calls, texting, meeting in person, or video chatting. They are there to support you through the class and want to make it as user-friendly and easy to know what is going on so that you have an understanding and can learn the material to pass the class. They want you to pass and will talk you through anything that you do not understand.

4 College Junior

Career Services: The career center and job prospects through this school are great. They are very friendly, helpful, and come in and talk to us before we need to actually know what to use them for so we have a reference for the future. It is an important part of this school and it would be silly if someone did not utilize it's services.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have only had one poor instructor at this school. It has been a great experience so far in the nursing program though because that professor was in the general education class list. The courses, again, are challenging but very worthwhile if you want to go into nursing. The professors are experienced nurses and most have their PhD as well as their RN.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: 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.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The class sizes vary, but never over a hundred. Professors are always willing to help you learn. Courses go at a fast pace because there is a lot of information professors need to go over

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: More than likely if you graduate from mercy, a mercy hospital will hire you

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Mercy college of health science is connect to mercy hospital, literally the college is two blocks away from the hospital. Most of the professors have been nurses before, so they can teach it the correct way and explain it in a hospital setting better.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors expect you to know the material, so lots of self teaching and studying. Which makes you understand the material more!

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: its hard to make a flexible schedule when you also work fulltime and live alone

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I'm not one to take online classes. when submitting assignments teachers say they were late when they weren't or they never received them.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: professors like you to do a lot of reading before hand so that can be overwhelming
