MS Nursing Schools

Nursing Schools in Mississippi
Not only has the nursing shortage affected the entire U.S., but because of events like Hurricane Katrina, many of the nurses who were employed in Mississippi lost jobs, relocated or began working as travel nurses throughout the U.S. Today, as Mississippi has continued to rebuild after the storm, more jobs are opening up for nurses throughout the state, as the number of LPNs, nurse practitioners and midwives remains below the national average.

Mississippi participates in the Nurses Licensure Compact (NLC) and provides many opportunities, grants and scholarships for nurses in all fields.
