    So how many of us Mississippians are students, and how many are actually nurses?

    I see there are several MGCCC students here, what about the rest of you?

    I'm a Level 2 student. I'd post a poll for Mississippi but, I haven't figured it out, yet.

    Just thought I'd post this for you other Miss'ippians out there -

    Info on a MS nursing scholarship/loan program (BSN or higher)

    I came accross this same site a while back. However, I never came accross anything about nursing scholarships. Thanks for posting the link.

    Here's another web site I just came across I thought you folks might find interesting - it shows the NCLEX pass rates for most (all?) of the nursing schools in the state! Might be helpful if you're still deciding on a school.

    It's a PDF file so you'll need Acrobat Reader to view it...

    USM has the lowest pass rate in the state for BSN and has the nerve enough to require such a time consuming thing as CNA as a pre-req.

    I was surprised to see that - I've always thought USM was one of the better schools in the state!

    You can explore around that site and also find some more information about the schools like faculty/student ratio, etc.

    From what I heard when I was living in MS... Mississippi University for Women has a VERY VERY good nursing program.... I went there for several semesters working on Pre-Reqs before I moved out of state...

    Wow...such a host of Mississippians all under one cyber roof. I grew up in Hattiesburg and am now in the Nashville area. I'm a student still working on prereqs and have chosen nursing as a second career.

    My sister is currently getting her FNP from USM and she's only had good things to say. She also got her BSN from USM. I also just heard that USM just bought part of the old Cloverleaf Mall to add on to their teaching space to let more people into the nursing program. Hopefully, they're doing something right.

    Burntout...love Steal Magnolias too? I noticed your signature. I'm new to this BB and already met a bunch of Mississippians, a fellow Alias lover and a Steal Magnolia. What a wonderful end to a lazy day!

    Thanks for your input! How'd you like the faculty/atmosphere at the "W"? I haven't even been over there for a meeting yet, but need to schedule one soon (was hoping to wait until my vacation time renewed here at work).

    Cam - my pastor and some of his family are from/live in Hattiesburg. Also have some distant cousins there. Seems like a big change going from Hburg to Nashville (so HUGE!)
