I'm at Mercy, currently finishing my prerequisites. As with other schools, there are some very, very good teachers, and some not so good. As far as I know, all of the science teachers are very good, and we are lucky to have tree great Anatomy and Physiology teachers. Since it is a catholic school, they are big on volunteering and charitable work, but I personally like that. What I'm not all that keen on is having to take at lest 3 different religion classes, but it is more boring than hard, and I'm done with most of it. I'm doing fast track BSN, and I will have good two years of nothing but clinicals (it is about seven semesters, but I'm doing it a bit faster). I have no idea will this be enough to get me prepared for the real life, but from what I heard, Mercy nursing students have a great reputation, better than other nursing schools in the region. Apparently, Mercy nurses know their procedures when they get done with school. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask, I'll try to help.
