DRIVE WITH PRIDE!
In 2003 the Mississippi Nurses Association lobbied the Legislature and HB 940 was passed, establishing a distinctive license plate for nursing! …


The Mississippi Nurses Foundation provides scholarships and stipends to nursing students and registered nurses throughout the state of Mississippi who are pursuing degrees in nursing.

From Our Executive Director

Last year I shared with you that we were on the road to “total greatness” and it could not be accomplished without you. Well, I’m excited to let you know that once again, you’ve come through and I am so proud of you!.

This year has been like a Best-Selling Novel, full of suspense, drama, excitement and fun. We’ve accomplished some amazing things and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for us.

During convention 2011, I shared MNFs mew mission statement: to raise, accept and disperse charitable donations to promote professional nursing and better health in Mississippi. Let me assure you that we have done just that. We’ve engaged some extraordinary nurses and partnered with non-healthcare organizations to promote nursing and raise money in non-traditional, yet effective ways:

  • We increased the number of schools and school nurses helping us fight germs and diseases through our High Five Hand Washing Project. This project teaches proper hand washing to elementary children in order for them to be healthier and develop a lifelong health habit.
  • Our Continuing Education approval process is almost green. LOL, we’re getting there! We tripled the number of Continuing Education Approved Providers and the number of applications for 2012. This accomplishment allows more nurses the opportunity for professional development and growth.
  • We’ve increased our visibility in schools of nursing throughout the state by offering scholarships to every school of nursing in the state, by attending the SON Awards Day Programs and Pinning Ceremony to present the award. We love our schools of nursing!
  • We increased the attendance at MNA/MNF Annual Nightingale Awards. For the first time in seven years, it was a Sell-Out. Thank you nurses! Let’s do it again this year.
  • We collaborated with professionals from varied organizations to assist us in creating a more visible presence within our community. For example, with the design of MNF Facebook page, raffling a 2012 Volvo S60, hosting an art show, and speaking engagements, we were able to share the services and programs of the Foundation across the State.

None of the above accomplishments would be possible without you and the support of an awesome Board of Trustees. I appreciate you all for allowing me to take some risks for the greater good. We made it through without a bruise.

I need your continued support in 2013 as we make our first BLOCK BUSTER MOVIE starring Mississippi Nurses!

 

Sincerely,

Rosalyn Howard
Executive Director
