In early 2014, CMC-Mercy, a 196 licensed bed hospital began experiencing a shortage of nurses and requests increased for volunteers. With successful engagement with the local community college, the nursing student volunteers fulfilled a volunteer role, which set them at the forefront with patients, families and staff. As of this date, 48% of the nursing student volunteers are current teammates of our hospital system.
