Demand for Nurses Growing

If nothing changes, all but a handful of states are projected to have a major nursing shortage within the next ten years.

Locally, steps are being taken to address the shortage before it gets worse.

According to the head of the nursing program at Meridian Community College, national statistics project almost one million vacancies in registered nursing by the year 2020.

The reason for this is multi-faceted. It ranges from a large aging population to more medical demands and more nurses nearing retirement.

In the Meridian area, officials say the need for nurses is not yet that critical. But there are mounting concerns about meeting the demands of the future.

As within other parts of the state and nation, the dean for the Meridian Community College Nursing Program says budget constraints limit the number of instructors.

“People with master’s degrees in nursing, they’re nurse practitioners or they’re in hospital administration,” said Dr. Betty Davis. “And it’s far more lucrative to be there financially than it is to work for the state and be a nursing educator.”

Because of state and federal mandates, fewer instructors mean fewer students in nursing programs. That’s why Davis says well over half of the people who qualify to enter MCC’s nursing program each year are not allowed to enter it.

Even with cuts on the front end, she says, once in the program, there are guidelines that must be followed when conducting on-site clinical sessions.

“Anderson and Rush, they’re really good at working with us, but they only have so many slots for students,” said Davis. “We use weekends, nights, and daytime, but we’ve pretty much saturated our clinical experiences.”

To help meet the growing demand for nurses locally, for the last ten years Anderson and Rush Hospitals have teamed up to provide a $250,000 grant to MCC’s nursing program.

Officials at Rush Hospital say they are also implementing other initiatives to help meet the growing need.

New nurse organization fights health disparities

Obesity, heart disease and diabetes were just some of the issues nurses with the Mississippi Gulf Coast Black Nurse Association were tackling this weekend.  They know their work is critical to helping a community disproportionately impacted by these diseases compared to other parts of the country.

“There’s just an explosion and the explosion relates to cost,” said Deborah Toney, the National Black Nurse Association President. “We know that’s at the heart of it all, but the system is not set up to deal with issues related to chronic disease.”

With the debate over healthcare reform at a feverish pitch, the president of the National Black Nurse Association believes now more than ever, nurses have to be informed and ready to handle the new challenges facing the healthcare industry.

Nurses searching for cures for rising health care concerns

More than 1,100 registered nurses and nursing students are attending the 98th Annual Mississippi Nurses Association Convention in Biloxi. The nurses are networking and sharing ideas to help deal with ongoing problems, along with new ones that erupted this year.

“Doc, I feel like I could die,” said the pretend patient.

The computerized mannequin can cough, breathe and complain of ailments just like a real patient. The demonstration is among the 100 exhibits that give nurses a peak at the latest tools and topics in the healthcare industry.

College Board gives final approval to EMCC nursing degree

MAYHEW — The state College Board has granted final approval for an associate degree nursing program at East Mississippi Community College’s Golden Triangle campus.

The unanimous decision came Thursday morning during a regular meeting of the board of the Institutions of Higher Learning at Alcorn State University.

“We appreciate the board’s support of our new ADN program, and the support of the medical community throughout the application process. With an aging baby boomer population and a critical nursing shortage, it’s going to be a good thing for the state,” said EMCC President Dr. Rick Young.

New MGCCC nursing program chairwoman aims to continue success of the school

Joan Hendrix has found her career as a nurse and later as a nursing instructor very satisfying.

“In the nursing arena, you are not there for the money or for the fame,” she said. “You are there to help people who are not able to help themselves. I still feel that I am able to help others as a nurse through other individuals that are trying to grow themselves in the profession.”

Hendrix has been an instructor in the Associate Degree Nursing program at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College’s, Jackson County campus, for eight years. She recently was named the new Associate Degree Nursing Department chairwoman on that Gautier campus.

USM School of Nursing welcomes inaugural doctoral class

The University of Southern Mississippi School of Nursing recently welcomed the first students in a new program designed to take health care practice to a higher level.

Ten full-time students comprise the inaugural class of the Doctor of Nursing Practice program. Unlike the traditional research-based Ph.D in nursing program, whose focus is on knowledge generation, the DNP model ensures that evidenced-based knowledge makes its way in the health care arena.
