BOWLING GREEN, Ohio - Bowling Green State University and Mercy College of Ohio announced Wednesday a new partnership to help address a statewide shortage of nurses.
The two schools announced they have signed a letter of intent to transfer operations of Mercy College of Ohio to BGSU.
“This partnership is a great fit,” said BGSU President Rodney Rogers. “As a public university, we have an obligation to create public good. That meshes seamlessly with Mercy’s mission to provide health care and wellness services to all in need. Together, we can strengthen health care education in Ohio and better serve our students.”
The transfer will include Mercy College's nine degree programs and six certificate programs. It is expected to take two to three years to be fully implemented.
