Nursing Education Opportunities in Mississippi Handbook 2004



JACKSON (August 31, 2004) -- The Mississippi Hospital Association Health Careers Center went on a mission to cover the nursing field in all aspects. The Nursing Education Opportunities in Mississippi Handbook was published by the Mississippi Hospital Association to provide information with a comprehensive overview of the many different nursing programs within the state. Basic information is provided related to practical nursing, associate degree, baccalaureate, master's and Ph. D. degree programs. Information is included for individuals interested in a career in nursing to assist them as they begin their educational preparation as a nurse or to expand their education and achieve an additional level of nursing preparation. A description of each level of nursing preparation is provided, along with identification of the schools which offer that level of educational preparation.

In this information, an executive summary of the Mississippi Competency Model is included. This model was developed to enhance the education and practice skills of Mississippi nurses. The Model identifies three major nursing roles and distinguishes four levels of nursing care providers. The Mississippi Council of Deans and Directors of Schools of Nursing is committed to identifying and preparing a nursing workforce that will meet the health care needs of Mississippi. This Council, in collaborations with other entities, continues to work with the Office of Nursing Workforce Redevelopment to test and refine the Mississippi Competency Model and to prepare a nursing workforce that will meet the health care needs of Mississippians.

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.
