This week marks National Nurses Week. The purpose of the week is to raise public awareness of the value of nursing and to help educate the public about the vital roles nurses play in meeting health care needs.

The College of Mount St. Joseph has one of the top nursing programs in the country. One of our students, Mark Perkins, is a veteran who decided to study nursing after his stint in the Navy which landed him in the war getting hands-on experience. Watch his story.
