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.
