Nursing at Mercy

As a Mercy nurse you are part of a Magnet team – where nurses have a strong voice about the delivery of quality patient care. Your skills, achievements and opinions are highly valued. Join the nurses at Mercy and become a member of the heart and soul of our hospital.

What our nurses have to say about nursing at Mercy:

"Mercy has given me the opportunity to grow as a nurse. I started at Mercy as a CNA on Rehab/Skilled, and with support of staff and management I now am the Clinical Leader. Through Shared Governance at Mercy I have a voice in determining nursing practice, standards and quality of care. Balancing career and family is an aspect that Mercy values, and having an on-site daycare facility and preschool program makes doing so possible."

– Courtney, BSN, RN, Clinical Leader


"Mercy invests in its future with Shared Governance, and it's reflected in the nursing staff. I have been involved with Shared Governance for nine years and have loved every year. It's a wonderful feeling to know that we have a voice in our practice as nurses here at Mercy. We truly are a magnet organization."

– Peggy, BSN, RN, Shared Governance Central Education Chair and Preceptor Steering Chair
