Misericordia University Reviews
Overall the school has a very nice campus, but the acedemia is another story. I graduated with a degree in IT. 4 months after graduation and I can't find a job, my education didn't prepare me at all for real world industry. The professors really didn't do a good job at all in helping the students prepare for a career. I didn't complete one note worthy project for any IT class my time at Misericordia which really has hurt me in the job hunt as many potential employers find it concerning that I haven't worked on any big school projects. Which I reply with the faculty haven't assigned us any projects in any classes. The business department is better but really nothing to brag about. Overall I would only recommend coming to this University if you plan on going for one of their health science degrees such as PT, OT, or Speech Language Pathology.
Wonderful, small, close- knit school. Great teaching and health science majors.
I was part of the first graduating class of MU's PA program in 2014. While the program had a few bumps along the way as new programs do, overall, I felt like I received an excellent education and went to really good clinical rotation sites. My professors during didactic year were knowledgeable and understanding while still pushing me to do my best. Class time was used well in addition to allowing outside class study time. The professors all have many years of PA experience which allow you as a student to see how you will be using your classroom education in the real world. All the professors still clinically practice as well. MU also has a cadaver lab with an excellent anatomy professor. My clinical preceptors pushed me hard and enhanced my clinical skills along the way. And, most importantly, I felt like I was sufficiently prepared to take the national certification exam (the PANCE) and pass, not unlike most of my class who has also taken the exam and passed.
