We consistently evaluate our programs to identify ways to improve value of care delivery, to develop efficiencies in our processes and to ensure patients receive the best possible care. This ongoing process recently has included a review of our educational programs to understand how to best meet the demands of an evolving healthcare system and changing needs of patients.
Following this evaluation, the organization has made the decision to restructure its nursing education programs and to continue to enhance the education provided at Carolinas College of Health Sciences and Cabarrus College of Health Sciences. As such, Mercy School of Nursing will no longer be accepting applications for new students. The School will continue its normal operations until the August 2014 student class graduates.
This decision is in no way a reflection of the educational excellence delivered by Mercy School of Nursing faculty or of the outstanding care delivered by its teammates or alumni. Providing quality education through our schools remains a priority for Carolinas HealthCare System, and we will continue to offer among the best nursing education and training in the region and in the nation.
