Becoming a Registered Nurse in Mississippi

There are many RN training programs in Mississippi that are available to anyone interested in applying. These programs have been around for some time to help prepare students for a fast-paced and demanding career. The average RN salary in Mississippi is $60,790 a year, or $29 an hour.

Schools, colleges and universities all over the state of Mississippi are welcoming new students each and every day. They are training them for a career that will take them far beyond what they might have imagined. They will be able to help physicians and other RN’s perform necessary duties, assist patients with many aspects of their treatment and progress, and help in the recovery rooms.

This is not a field for the faint of heart as nurses will be exposed to patients facing terminal illness and life-threatening diseases throughout he course of their work. For those willing to put in the time and have patience, being a nurse can prove to be very rewarding both personally and professionally. Nursing provides excellent job stability compared to other fields and also pays very competitively compared to other positions with similar education requirements.

There is currently a nursing shortage across the state of Mississippi and RNs are in high demand to fill positions in hospitals, nursing homes, hospice centers and assisted living facilities. Nurses play an important role in such types of health care facilities because they provide direct care for patients. Some RNs also fill supervisory or administrative roles to help provide a solid foundation for the facility to operate on.

Most RN programs in Mississippi require some basics to begin, such as a high school diploma and a willingness to learn. If you have the desire to help others then nursing could be the path for you to take. It’s respected, revered, and a long-standing profession. The salaries are not bad either. An experienced RN can make upwards of $80,000 or more per year.

Many nurses eventually branch out into various positions in the health care field. Some nurses later become educators, government workers, researchers or health care consultants. The experience one gains as an active nurse in a hospital setting is a valuable asset to bring to the job market.
