About

History

Founded in 1831 by the Venerable Mother Catherine McAuley in Dublin, Ireland, the Sisters of Mercy dedicated their work to the poor and needy residents of their city. Unlike other religious orders in Dublin at the time with missions to educate and help the poor, the Sisters of Mercy did not follow a rule of cloister, instead designing their ministry to work broadly throughout the city.

Education

For over 50 years, the School of Nursing and Health Professions has continued to grow and thrive while supporting the work and mission of the Sisters of Mercy and the University of San Francisco. The school has remained committed to advancing the preparation of professional nurses within the Jesuit academic tradition — a strong liberal arts and science foundation coupled with professional knowledge in the discipline of nursing. Likewise, the School of Nursing and Health Professions remains committed to justice, service, and academic excellence, and creates nurses and health care leaders who strive for equal access to competent and compassionate health care across all communities.

Research

At the University of San Francisco, we cultivate a culture of collaborative inquiry and innovative study. Every teacher and researcher works in a diverse and dynamic environment, pursuing their interests with the full support of USF and its resources.
