The SOLD OUT Selected Reading Dinner Theatre event last night was a success! A special thank you to actors Dr. Larry Stewart, Cindy Stewart, Sally Johnson and Michael Guttuso (moderator). Thank you to all of our Sponsors, Southwest MS Community College, MNA District 2, and all ticket purchasers and attendees!
It is an honor for me to write about the successes of the Mississippi Nurses Foundation and how your support and contributions Touched Lives. The vision of MNF is to be the charitable organization in the state of Mississippi that is most influential in impacting the professional image of nursing, sponsoring continuing nursing education, and funding for nursing.
With that vision in mind, we engaged some extraordinary nurses and friends of nurses throughout the state of Mississippi:
- We expanded our Nurses Car Tag program by increasing the number of scholarships to schools of nursing; which support nurses in advancing their education.
- We collaborated with professionals from varied disciplinces of nursing and friends of nursing to assist us in creating a more visible presence within our community. For example, we engaged more non-healthcare organizations to participate in our annual Nightingale Awards Gala, we continued our partnership with Paul Moak Volvo, we increased the number of speaking engagements where we share MNF with others; and we were able to share the services and programs of the Foundation across the state.
- We supported new organizations in developing quality continuing education courses for registered nurses in Mississippi.
- We continued our collaboration with the Mississippi Department of Health Office of Tobacco Control to engage nursing students and nurses about the dangers of tobacco usage.
With your continued support and tax-deductible donations we will continue to expand our program and increase the number of scholarhships that are awarded annually.
