JOSEPH MERCY HOSPITAL IN BEAUTIFUL FOREST PARK -- MASON CITY, IOWA CONDUCTED BY THE S STERS OF MERCY Unit of St. Joseph Mercy College of Nursing SIOUX CITY, IOWA MERCY NURSES HOME PICTURED ABOVE The St. Joseph Mercy Hospital which is located on a beautiful wooded tract of land with wide spreading lawns, is the home of the St. Joseph School of Nursing. The school, which is fully accredited by the Iowa State Board of Nurse Examiners, was or- jjanized in 1916 by the Religious Sisters of Mercy. Applicants must be in good health with no physical defects, and at least 17 years of age at the time of enrollment. Preference is given to applicants with college work or to those who rank in the upper third of their high school graduating class. All freshmen^spend the first 9 months of the course at St. Joseph Mercy College of Nursing, Sioux City, Iowa, which is the central school. At the completion of this, the pre-clinical period, the students return to the unit school for the clinical work. Because of the association with the Central School, any student who has completed 2 years of college, with subjects of proper sequence, is eligible for a Bachelor of Science degree upon completion of the course. BED CAPACITY EXCEEDS 200 BEDS LARGE STAFF OF NURSES AND DOCTORS COMPLETE UP-TO-DATE EQUIPMENT Upon this occasion, we of the St. Joseph Mercy Hospital join with the residents of this community in paying tribute to the Cerro Gordo County Medical Society in their pursuit of medical progress. We salute the members of this group who have chosen one of the noblest professions, Doctor of Medicine—men and women who have dedicated their lives to the service .of mankind, and who are constantly studying and striving to make our lives better and healthier. They have an unquenchable thirst for more and better knowledge to* make themselves ready for the constant new perils that threaten the health of Americans. We of the hospital staff are grateful for this opportunity to pay tribute to THE DOCTORS. COURSE INCLUDES ADVANCED NURSING SPECIALTIES The course of nursing at the St. Joseph Mercy School of Nursing, Mason City, Iowa, extends over a 3-year period. The first 9 months of the course are entirely devoted to theoretical work. This includes a daily hospital practice period. The remainder of the course is devoted almost entirely to supervised clinical work at the hospital in advanced nursing specialties.
