Nurse In Need Program for Nurses

On behalf of the Mississippi Nurses Foundation Board of Directors, we write this message to encourage nurses across our great state. As nurses, many of you are on the front lines of this national crisis and we support you endlessly. We also want to thank you for your heroic measures and remind you that we, the Mississippi Nurses Foundation, are here for you.

There is no doubt, COVID-19 has changed our lives as individuals, our great profession, our state, and nation forever. As a foundation dedicated to the nursing profession and health and wellbeing of Mississippi citizens, we’re reaching out to you with our “Nurse in Need” program.

The Mississippi Nurses Foundation Nurse in Need program provides financial assistance up to $500 to Mississippi nurses who are members of the Mississippi Nurses Association during hardship, such as a loss of employment, physical injury, disaster, travel cost, childcare, supplies, etc.

In this devastating time and always, we want to help!

From Mississippi Nurses Foundation Accreditation Administrator, Dr. Susan Hart

Dear Providers,

During this time of social distancing and Covid-19 concerns, we are making the following recommendations for conducting CE activities:

1. Those providers who have recently submitted CE applications and/or received approval, the expiration date will be TBA until you are able to schedule a date for the activity. As soon as you know the new date of the CE activity, send me an email and a new approval letter will be issued.

2. Move face-to-face CE activities to online activity or enduring activity.

a. Online activity or internet live is provider-driven by offering the activity through WebEx, Zoom, Skype, or any other video conferencing at a specific time or real-time for learners to participate. Send me an email if you are planning to convert the activity and the mode.

b. Enduring activity is learner-driven or self-directed at the learner’s time and space. A resource for moving a live activity to enduring is attached. Send me an email and the completed planning table if you are planning to convert the activity.

Converting live activity to enduring activity

Please email me if you have any questions or need assistance – dr.susanhart@gmail.com
