Leadership from Mount Carmel College of Nursing, Fairfield Medical Center, and Ohio University-Lancaster join MCCN—Lancaster students in celebrating the 10th anniversary of the collaborative partnership between Mount Carmel College of Nursing and Fairfield Medical Center. This collaboration — which began in 2008 — is an extension of the mission and commitment to quality health care and academic excellence and offers students in Lancaster the same nursing education excellence as provided on MCCN’s Columbus campus since 1903. Today, 123 alumni are graduates of MCCN—Lancaster. The 10th Anniversary was marked with a special celebration on Friday, August 24.
This month marks the 115th Anniversary of the founding of Mount Carmel School of Nursing by the Sisters of the Holy Cross on September 15, 1903. Ninety years later, the Class of 1993 was the last to earn a Diploma from the School of Nursing, as it had transitioned in 1990 to today’s College of Nursing. In the photograph is the first graduating class from the School with only 13 students – five laywomen and eight Sisters (who, in those days could not be photographed). With all the changes over the years, the College remains true to the its Core Values: Academic Excellence, Respect, Compassion, Social Responsibility and Diversity.
Now that the days are beginning to grow shorter, we know that fall is just around the corner, and that means we truly are in “back-to-school” mode! We have much to look forward to during the 2018—2019 academic year and already are off to a great start!
Each year, the Mount Carmel Foundation Golf Invitational benefits future scholarships and educational tools for MCCN students. This year, 124 golfers enjoyed a beautiful day of golf at Pinnacle Golf Club in Grove City. Thanks to our generous sponsors and donors, the outing raised more than $120,000! A special thanks to MCCN faculty, staff and students, as well as Foundation colleagues who helped make the outing a success.
