Welcome faculty, staff and students!

Welcome to a new year: The 114th academic year since the founding of Mount Carmel. It is a privilege for me to begin this year with you – serving you – as your interim president at Mount Carmel College of Nursing.

We have so much to look forward to together.

I especially want to welcome our newest students, the class of 2021. As I shared at Convocation last week, we are all honored you have chosen to answer your life’s calling to become professional nurses and especially that you have chosen to do so at Mount Carmel College of Nursing, an outstanding, fully accredited institution of higher learning.

Each year since its inception, MCCN director of Student Life, Colleen Cipriani, MA, asks for volunteers for FamJam, a family-oriented event co-presented by Franklin County Children’s Services and the Mayor of Columbus. FamJam is a free family enrichment festival held every summer and serves approximately 3,000 people in Franklin County. Thank you to the following students who volunteered their time on Saturday, August 5:
