Mount Carmel College of Nursing focuses on continual growth and transformation, not only for our students, faculty and staff, but for our institution of higher learning itself.

The College has been on a trajectory of growth for more than two decades – adding new programs, introducing new technologies and welcoming increasing numbers of students in both the undergraduate and graduate programs. Later this year, the Mount Carmel Health System will begin a $46 million transformation of the Franklinton campus, which includes expansion and many enhancements for the College.

To ensure we are prepared for our bright future, we have embarked on development of a comprehensive strategic plan in collaboration with key stakeholder groups, including our Board of Trustees, health system leaders, community partners, and faculty, staff, alumni and students.

We have engaged AMC Strategies, LLC, of Los Angeles to guide us in preparing enrichments to our programs and services that will not only identify ways to enhance the outcomes and preparedness of our graduates, but also allow us to accommodate the growth we anticipate. A Steering Committee, made up of MCCN faculty and staff, MCHS leadership, and MCCN Board of Trustee members, began meeting in November 2017. The group has conducted an environmental assessment, 40 individual and group interviews and, in January 2018, launched an essential fact-gathering survey. Planning is expected to conclude by the end of this academic year.

1 During the Fall Semester of 2011, a total of 198 new students (first-time and transfer) entered Mount Carmel College of Nursing. After 6 years (as of August 1, 2017), 81% of those students had graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.

2 Because it is not within the institution’s mission to provide preparation for students to transfer to another institution, Mount Carmel College of Nursing does not track or report transfer-out data.

3 Mount Carmel College of Nursing does not issue Immigration Form I-20 from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Therefore, the College does not enroll non-resident alien students.

On November 19, 2015, 86 new members were inducted into the MCCN's Rho Omicron Chapter during a festive and dynamic ceremony held in the MSB building at Mount Carmel West. The inductees consisted of students and nurses from the undergraduate program, RN-BSN program, graduate program and community leaders. All in attendance had the opportunity to listen to a powerful presentation given by MCCN Academic Dean Tara L. Spalla, PhD, RN. Dr. Spalla’s message to the newly inducted focused on leadership and that as new members beginning or continuing their journey within nursing to remember you are the leaders of change and the future. Dr. Spalla used STTI’s current President Dr. Hester Klopper’s call to action that focused on serving locally, transforming regionally and leading globally through four themes/roadmaps to leadership: servant leadership, connectedness, transformation and gratitude. Dr. Spalla encouraged the newly inducted to use their voice, embrace leadership opportunity, and inspire and lead others to contribute to the nursing profession. The message continued to center on STTI’s themes of love, honor, courage, connect, engage, grow, and advance, and she challenged the newly inducted to practice these important themes/roadmaps to leadership.
