DRIVE WITH PRIDE!

In 2003 the Mississippi Nurses Association lobbied the Legislature and HB 940 was passed, establishing a distinctive license plate for nursing!  Mississippi Nurses Foundation administers this program so that $24 of the $31 tag cost has been earmarked by the Nurses Foundation to enhance the nursing profession in Mississippi.  The money from the sale of the car tag is used for nursing scholarships, stipends for RNs, research, programs and other nursing/healthcare needs in Mississippi.

Questions and Answers for the MS Nurses Car Tag

How can I buy my nurses’ car tag?
Go to your county Tax Collector’s office and request the “Nursing Car tag”. When purchased, your nurse’s car tag will be ordered and mailed directly to you.

How much is the nurses’ tag?
The cost is $31.00 in addition to the cost of your regular tag, plus $2 shipping.

Does nursing receive any of the funds from car tag sales?
YES – the State Tax Commission provides $24 of the $31 fee back to nursing through the Mississippi Nurses Foundation. The Foundation uses the funds to give stipends ($5,000 each) to RNs enrolled in an accredited Nursing Masters Program in Mississippi with a focus in education.

What is my liability for rendering emergency care if I have a nurses’ car tag?
The nursing car tag renders NO liability to a nurse in any circumstance. If a nurse has a nurse’s car tag, the nurse is not obligated to stop. If the nurse chooses to stop and assistant in an emergency, the Good Samaritan Act would come into play.

I don’t want a personalized tag on my car but I would like to support the nurses’ car tag program. What can I do?
Everyone can participate in supporting Mississippi nurses by sending a $24 annual, tax-deductible contribution to Mississippi Nurses Foundation “in lieu of” buying the tag. We are pleased to include everyone in this exciting Nurse Tag Program.

Can my family and friends purchase a nurses car tag if they are not a nurse?
Yes, anyone can purchase the nurses car tag. You do not have to be a nurse to purchase the tag.
