4.14. Mercy Medical Center = Dignity Health

Dignity Health’s slogan is “Hello Humankindness” and Mercy, the hospital next door (across the street, technically), our benefactor, our teacher, has been beyond kind to us Merced College nursing students.
Let us count the ways.

The ED taught us how assessment and nursing judgment is everything.

OB showed us the most amazing thing in life—the beginning of life itself.

The ICU reminds us what really matters: airway, breathing, circulation, disability, exposure, and family.

Telemetry highlights the science and wonder of the human heart.

5th floor (home of my awesome preceptor!) covers everything from anemia to Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, and cancer, too.

6th floor has procedures & drains & dressings galore, and all the assessments, too.

7th floor was where we as first semester Smurfs in royal blue, trembling in our hideous white shoes, first got our feet wet (sometimes literally).

We thank Dignity Health, Mercy Medical Center, for helping us grow from baby nurses to novice nurses over the past two years, for being there for all our firsts--first injection, first piggy, first birth--for being our home and family away from home.

Sincerely,
Merced College 4th Semester Registered Nursing students
