Education Opportunities in Mississippi - 2006.
Published by the Mississippi Hospital Association, this information has
been prepared to provide you with a comprehensive overview of the many
different nursing programs within our state. Basic information is provided
related to practical nursing, associate degree, baccalaureate, master's
and Ph. D. degree programs. You will find information to assist you as you
begin your educational preparation as a nurse or to expand your 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, you will also
find an executive summary of the Mississippi Competency Model. 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.
