Mercy Mumba

A Born Healer

On a good day, she might help save a life. On a bad day, she at least improves the quality of life of people in need. Mercy Mumba, a 2010 graduate of UT Arlington’s College of Nursing, is passionate about healing. She found a perfect outlet for that passion in clinical rotations through the University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program.

“We have the best clinical instructors,” she says. “Knowing that you are taught and mentored by the crème de la crème of your profession helps you put your best foot forward every time you are in clinical.”

Mumba says she also benefited from training in the Smart Hospital, a state-of-the-science education center that enables students to learn using simulation technology, including full-body interactive patient simulators and computerized scenario-based programs.

In 2010 she received the Clinical Excellence Award for her consistent application of the nursing process when providing patient care with dedication and enthusiasm. It was a great honor, she says, but the rewards of her profession are much more intangible.

“Nursing encourages me to think critically and constantly apply the nursing process to my everyday encounters in the clinical setting,” Mumba says. “I like helping people get better, and words are not enough to describe the joy I get from seeing my patients recover.”
