College of Nursing

Here are some statistics of note on the state of nursing:

  • The average age of today’s nurse and nurse educator is 47.
  • 40% of the current nursing work force will retire in the next 10 years.
  • Nationally, the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) Advocates:
    • Nurses moving to advance education
      Examples: RN-BSN, MSN-Doctoral
    • Increasing proportion of nurses with BSNs

As these numbers show, there has never been a greater need for nurses or nursing education, which makes the support the Mount Carmel Foundation provides to the Mount Carmel College of Nursing more imperative than ever.

Mount Carmel College of Nursing (MCCN) is the second largest baccalaureate nursing program in the state of Ohio. MCCN is among the top 10% in enrollment nationally, reaching a record enrollment in 2013 of 1100 students. Enrollment has grown more than 80% over the past five years. With that growth has come an increasing need to provide qualifying students with financial aid and scholarships. Over 90% of the Mount Carmel College of Nursing student body receives either federal aid or financial aid/scholarships awarded by the College. In 2013, 169 students received almost $342,000 through the philanthropic support of donors to the Mount Carmel Foundation.
