What does diversity efforts looks like at MCCN?

Mount Carmel College of Nursing (MCCN) is committed to supporting and sustaining diversity on our campus. Our goal of respecting diverse spiritual and cultural values goes hand-in-hand with our goals of service to community and to offering educational opportunities for holistic development of outstanding health care professionals.

When considering MCCN, you, like many students, may feel the need to ask questions such as: What is it like academically and socially? Will I fit in? Are there people like me? Will I find my niche? You'll find answers about the diversity of the MCCN community by exploring more about our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council diversity section on our website and by talking with our admissions staff and current students.

Where can I eat on campus?

We have a coffee shop in the Center for Learning and Education (CLE), Charlie’s Java Jolt, available for student for a quick snack, deli sandwiches, a sweet treat, and beverages. Additionally, many local restaurants deliver to the Columbus campus through DoorDash and other food delivery apps.

Did you bring something to eat? There are kitchen facilities throughout the College that students can use to heat up a meal or make a small cup of coffee. Students are welcome to eat in the Marian Hall lounge, library, enjoy our outdoor spaces with a picnic table, and other spots around campus!

Are students allowed to have cars on campus?

Yes, any student is allowed to have a car on campus and will need to provide their own transportation to clinical sites, beginning sophomore year. The only restriction is that students must park in designated areas; however, our parking garage is free. It's important to note that MCCN is on a bus line.

What activities are available to MCCN students?

Students at MCCN can be very active and can join an existing group or start a new one. Many of our students are active in a variety of activities such our Student Senate, SNAM (Student Nurse Association of Mount Carmel), or Men in Nursing groups. In addition, students can participate in MCCN sponsored activities around the City of Columbus and beyond. Also, a few of our students conduct leadership development training through Army ROTC.

Should I purchase a computer?

Many MCCN courses have components that require computer/technology access, including online test proctoring. Be sure to review the most up-to-date technology requirements before making such an important purchase.
