MNF Executive Director Resigns
An Unforgettable Journey
It all started in October of 2008 when I asked nurses to pack a $20 bill and join me at MNA’s Annual Convention to raise money for MNF. From that moment, my time serving as your executive director has been nothing short of amazing. However, my journey has come to an end, as I submitted my resignation to embark on a new opportunity.
I want to personally thank each of you for your support when we Danced with the Nurses to raise money for our handwashing program, when we Survived with Style to support cancer survivors, when we purchased bricks to remember and honor nurses, when we asked the community to quit tobacco, when we shared nursing career ladders with high school students, when we collaborated with other organizations to bring awareness to their cause and highlighted the value of nursing, when we rallied together to help nurses in need, when we soared beyond measure with the Nurses Car Tag Program, when we walked the red carpet to celebrate you the Nightingale way, and as we awarded over a million dollars in scholarships.
But what I will remember and cherish the most, is when you allowed me to speak to your students or to give the keynote address. Those moments gave me goosebumps.
Thank you nurses for your friendship and unyielding support throughout the years. I have truly enjoyed working for such an extraordinary organization. To the MNA and MNF staff, you all are simply wonderful and I have enjoyed each of you. To my board of trustees, how lucky am I to have worked with such visionary leaders who have supported me in ensuring the organization has a solid foundation.
As Always, Nurses Touch Lives!

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
