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.

Health care reform won’t satisfy all

Health care reform news is popping up everywhere, in unprecedented places.

Television, health insurance ads, news venues, on my cell phone with an unsolicited phone ad and recently in email with an en masse “Chicken Little” blog scenario of reform vignettes propelled by conservative zealots.

So it started me thinking, what are the basic tenets, the key elements of the health care reform proposals? Sorting out an evolving giant piece of legislation is like measuring a moving iceberg with above and below factors.

Mississippians’ ponder health-care reform

As elected officials in Washington work out details of a proposed health-care reform plan, Mississippians are watching - some hopeful, some fearful - of possible changes in a state with more than half-a-million uninsured residents.

While some see a chance to free more families from the burden of large health-care costs, others foresee new burdens for small business owners or too much government control of health care.

Mental-health fund shortfall a surprise

The head of the state Department of Mental Health plans to meet today with Gov. Haley Barbour regarding the $30 million shortfall in funding for Mississippi’s 15 community mental health centers.

Some lawmakers “thought there was money in the budget that was not there,” Ed LeGrand, executive director of the Department of Mental Health, said Monday. “They realize now they did not have all the information.”

Department officials hope to get backing from Barbour and lawmakers for a plan to borrow against the fiscal year’s second half of appropriations to make up for the deficit. Under the plan, lawmakers would reimburse the department after they return in January.

PSS keeps working to provide compassionate healthcare

GREENVILLE — Health care is one of those businesses that tends to produce a “Catch 22” situation.

Providers have to strike a balance between patient care and staying in business.

Professional Staffing Solutions Executive Director Pandora Redmond appears to have found a niche that doesn’t compromise patient care in the very competitive health care industry.

“We offer optimal services not only to the large facilities but also to the community,” Redmond said. “We provide health care staffing to hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, private homes or to whomever is short-staffed or needs assistance in the form of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants, home makers, RT’s and EMT’s.”

Quantcast

According to 2007 data from the Mississippi Office of Nursing Workforce, state hospitals have an 8.7 percent nurse vacancy rate. That is marginally higher than the nationwide 8.1 percent vacancy rate reported by the American Hospital Association.

And it isn’t going away.

“There’s a shortage in the country,” said Ricki Garrett, executive director of the Mississippi Nursing Association. “We are probably going to go from about 7-8 percent to 29 percent by 2020 nationally - that’s a shortage of half a million nurses.”
