2005 Mississippi Men in Nursing Calendar



JACKSON (November 9, 2004) -- The MHA Health Careers Center showcases 12 new stars for the 2005 Mississippi Men in Nursing Calendar. The goal was to produce a 2005 calendar featuring Mississippi male nurses in a diversified manner. While the number of men in nursing is gradually climbing, they represent only 5.4 percent of the 2.7 million nurses in the United States. We created the calendar to recognize this important segment of the profession. These men are admirable, skillful, and caring individuals who deserve acknowledgement for the huge impacts they have made in our lives. For years, men have not considered the contributions they can provide to nursing. However, this trend is being reversed.

The calendar is used as a recruiting tool to help encourage men, young and old, consider the vast opportunities in nursing. It is distributed to schools as part of a health careers recruitment information kit.  The calendar will also be available for purchase through the Health Careers Center Web site at www.mshealthcareers.com.  Any profits from this calendar are used to fund health career scholarships throughout the state of Mississippi. We can only hope that by showcasing just a handful of Mississippi's very own men in nursing that others will see the rewarding opportunities there are in pursuing a career in health care.

About MHA Health Career Center:

The MHA Health Careers Center was created by the Mississippi Hospital Association in response to the shortages in nursing and allied health careers. These shortages are threatening the delivery of timely and quality healthcare in Mississippi and must be addressed. The Center provides resources for individuals interested in health careers and to hospitals for employee recruitment and retention.

The MHA Health Careers Center is focused on being the primary resource for students, educators, job seekers and healthcare employers interested in health care information and occupations in Mississippi. By forming partnerships with educational institutions, healthcare employers and healthcare professional organizations, we are working to ensure that the medical needs of all Mississippians are cared for by a sufficient number of well-trained professionals.
