Our Mission

Since our founding by the Sisters of the Holy Cross in 1903, we honor our mission by providing excellence in nursing education in a caring, respectful and socially responsible way.

Small Classes, Big Connections

You’ll love our faculty-to-student ratios that allow smaller, more manageable class sizes and personal attention. Our connections — locally with Mount Carmel Health System and nationally with Trinity Health — offer great clinical experiences and job opportunities.

Our History

In 1886, the founders of Mount Carmel Hospital invited the Sisters of the Holy Cross to Columbus to manage the new hospital. The sisters saw a need for excellent nursing care and founded a training school for nurses — today’s Mount Carmel College of Nursing.
