Welcome to Mercy! Our mission is clear. We bring to life a healing ministry through our compassionate care and exceptional service. At Mercy, you’ll feel our supportive community every step of your student experience. We are committed to surrounding you with a supportive community to help you achieve your goals.
A shadow/observation experience is for observation only without any hands-on interaction. It is limited to 40 hours or less (within one year) and you are not required to be enrolled in a school. Please complete the Shadowing/Observation Application.
An individual learning experience is a hands-on experience (either clinical or non-clinical). This experience requires you to be enrolled in a school program unless you are seeking an unpaid internship or are a professional approved to do research at Mercy. Please complete the Individual Learning Experience Application.
We're happy to help with any questions you may have. Contact your local student coordinator:
During your student experience at Mercy you may come in contact with the Protected Health Information (or PHI) of Mercy’s patients. PHI includes any information about the patient’s health care, the patient’s physical or mental condition or payment for the patient’s health care. Even the fact that an individual is a patient of Mercy is PHI to be held confidential. Mercy and you are bound by law to keep this information confidential.
Students completing a clinical experience must wear scrubs and closed-toe shoes to be in clinical areas. Long hair must be tied back, and no long or artificial nails are allowed. Students completing non-clinical experiences must wear a polo style or button-down shirt and dress pants (no leggings or jeans).
Students are required to wear a name badge while on Mercy campus. Please wear your school name badge at all times. If you do not have a school name badge, you may request a temporary name badge from your Mercy student coordinator.
