Mississippi Health Careers Guidebook 2005-2007

For the first time in many years, the MHA Health Careers Center has decided to republish the Mississippi Health Careers Guidebook that will be updated and republished every two years. The guidebook includes all the various health careers that the state of Mississippi has to offer. We plan for the guidebook to be a huge success. It will be used by high schools, colleges, and hospitals as an excellent recruitment tool full of all the individual career descriptions, salaries, licenses, and requirements needed to pursue each career along with all the programs for each occupation that the colleges of Mississippi have to offer. The guidebook is completed and we are now in the process of distribution.
