Patients and volunteers often do a double take because of two TCU nursing students who are regular volunteers at the clinic. Ellie and Emily Sullivan brighten the hallways and rooms of the clinic with their infectious smiles and compassionate hearts. The ministry of Mercy Clinic was introduced to them by their grandparents who had seen the clinic sign during a visit to church. Knowing their granddaughters were freshmen nursing majors and fluent in Spanish led to a quick connection. For Emily and Ellie, the ministry combines 3 of their passions: Spanish, medicine, and Jesus. Emily particularly appreciates the opportunity to pray with patients. Both enjoy the freedom to observe patient care and using their nursing skills; and the wonderful balance between treating the patient and teaching moments. Emily and Ellie have invited their fellow nursing students to volunteer as well. Rachel Farrow and Mallory Dean are TCU nursing
students who loves the cooperative spirit and the caring volunteers that also serve at Mercy Clinic.
