Kathryn Mershon

As a final nod to our 30th anniversary, we interviewed Co-Founder Kathryn Mershon to learn more fascinating details about how she and Humana Co-Founders David Jones and Wendell Cherry decided to open nursing schools to address a severe nursing shortage in the late 1980s.

Mershon has more than 25 years of experience as a senior health care executive. For 13 years, she served as a senior officer of Humana and was responsible for developing corporate strategies for quality, consistency, and cost-effectiveness of nursing practice. She founded and served as president of Humana Health Institutes, known today as Galen College of Nursing.
