One of the best ways we can find great people to join our teams is by spreading the word that Misericordia is hiring. There is no guarantee that all referrals will be hired but we can guarantee that all referrals who meet the qualifications, will be interviewed and considered. Hiring managers do their very best to hire talented individuals who will add to the team dynamic and provide great care for our residents. You can earn up to $1000 for each successful hire who works with us for a year, as a result of your efforts to refer them to us. In the next few days we will have recruitment materials in our reception areas, please take them and pass them along. If you need additional material, you can reach out to [email protected] and our Recruiting Team will assist you.



An Individual Development Plan (IDP) is a plan to help employees reach the goals determined during the performance evaluation process. This plan will help employees stay on track with their goals. All self-raters will meet with their evaluators to discuss the IDP. 

Click here to find the IDP form, as well as a training video that will help you understand the form as a self-rater. These materials can also be found in the Performance Review folder on the home screen of all Mis devices.

It is said that "music allows us to communicate common humanity to each other." This quarter we invite everyone to send us songs that make you feel uplifted and empowered. This includes songs that communicate your identity; songs that communicate how you feel; and songs you listen to for a confidence boost to get you through your everyday lives!

Here are the guidelines:

  • You may include songs from any genre, songs in any language, and songs with no lyrics.
  • Please be mindful of songs containing explicit language and provide clean/radio edit versions of them if possible.
  • Residents who wish to submit songs should be assisted by staff, as needed. Please provide their first name and last initial.

There is no limit to how many songs you submit, so drop them here and we will share them in Campus Connections.
