Student & Graduate Reviews

4.6 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

I recently graduated from Mount Mercy University in Cedar Rapids Iowa with a Master's of Science in Nursing degree. This program was completely in the classroom, 2 nights a week for 18 months (full time). I was really looking for a program with classroom time because I did not think I would be as successful in a 100% online program. There are limited Master's programs in my area that are not mostly online, which is why I was drawn to Mount Mercy's program. The evening class schedule also allowed me to work full time as a RN while completing the program. I learned great leadership, critical thinking, and health promotion skills that are going to advance my nursing career to the next level. I chose the Health Advocacy tract because my passion has always been working with patients, providing education, and being an advocate for their health. I was very impressed with the knowledge and experience from the instructors and felt like they really cared about providing me with a great education experience. However, not everything about the program was perfect. Prior to this program, I completed my BSN degree in a hybrid class setting. This allowed us to still meet in the class room occasionally, but also work individually and in groups through online course work. I would have liked to do a little bit more online work in my MSN program. In summary, if your looking for an on campus program, Mount Mercy University it a great option!

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2005

I received my undergraduate degree in nursing at Mount Mercy College in 2005. Mount Mercy gave me the foundation to start a successful career as a registered nurse. The structured program, with emphasis on nursing professionalism and strong skills sets, puts forth highly desired and requested nurses into the workplace. Mount Mercy is a highly respected university in the area and nurses from this institution are highly sought after. I believe that I received such an excellent education at Mount Mercy that I have decided to pursue a graduate education from this institution. There's not a doubt in my mind that I will receive an education that will put me ahead of others in this career.

MMU takes the time to assist me in everything that I have issues with.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Excellent professors that available for students and very willing to help with any problems. Small class size enables great discussion rather than simple lecture.. The campus food is great, the campus culture is welcoming, and everyone is extremely helpful. Cons: Not enough time to explore all the clubs and activities available on campus.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros - Small class sizes and team building activities. Cons - Multiple "large paper" assignments (e.g., 25 page research papers) - which seems unusual for an MBA program.
