Looking back on their experience at MCCN, here’s what a few graduating students had to say about what they liked best about the College.
“Mount Carmel College of Nursing, I believe, is an exceptional nursing program and offers an accepting and welcoming environment. The school's campus is clean and appealing. The staff and faculty I have worked with are extremely personable and very excited and willing to teach students. I enjoyed the family environment and closeness of students and instructors in the program. Mount Carmel has a rigorous program that I enjoyed and I believe challenged me. I also feel confident about taking the NCLEX-RN exam and I feel adequately prepared for it. Lastly, I believe that the ATI books and exams interwoven throughout the program really helped to build a foundation as well as strong review of content and adequate practice for taking nursing-like tests.”
MCCN President Christine Wynd, PhD, RN, attended the 8th Annual Ohio Presidents Conference at the personal invitation of Senator Sherrod Brown, who sponsored the event last week at the U.S. Capitol. Dr. Wynd was asked by Senator Brown to serve on the host committee, approving the agenda and introducing key speakers. Event themes focused on higher education reauthorization, compliance and helping to fund college for underrepresented and first generation students – all timely topics facing higher education today. Dr. Wynd also met with Senators Lamar Alexander and Patty Murray, who are introducing a bill to reduce the compliance burden recently placed on U.S. higher education institutions. Other speakers and guests included Senator Rob Portman, Congresswoman Joyce Beatty and Richard Cordray, director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
On Sunday afternoon, April 12, the Rho Omicron Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) hosted a benefit tea for Twin Valley Behavioral Health, raising $750 for this facility, and announced the recipients of chapter scholarships and grants.

Faculty, staff and students are invited to attend the 25th Annual Siegel Lecture, set for Thursday, May 7 at 6 p.m. at the Siegel Center at Mount Carmel East. This year’s speaker, Ashley K. Fernandes, MD, PhD, FAAP, associate director of the Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities at The Ohio State University College Medicine and associate professor of pediatrics at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, will focus on “Courage in Medicine.”
Ethical issues in healthcare are common. Nearly every decision that’s made has ethical implications – for patients, for providers, and for healthcare leaders. Fernandes will present post-modern conceptions and principles of bioethics, critique cognitive relativism, moral relativism, and subjectivism, and establish an authentic philosophical anthropology for medicine.
