Re: East Mississippi State Hospital
Alliance is an inpatient psychiatric hospital. They serve children, adolescents, adults and geriatric patients. I worked there when it was LaurelWood...I helped open the children's unit and I worked with adolescents until then. I loved it. The teen-agers can be hard to handle and even violent at times. You have to make decisions and be willing to stand by them. However, at the end of most days I felt like I had done some good. Anyway, Alliance is on Hwy 39 near the Hill St. intersection. It should be listed in the phone book. My understanding is that they always need nurses; I know they were using alot of agency at one time. If I still lived in the area, I would work there. If you enjoy psych nursing, it could be a good fit. If you are interested in medical nursing, Rush Foundation Hospital in Meridian is hiring. Be warned, though, you will definitely stay VERY busy at Rush. (My son is a RN in the Meridian area so I keep up with what is going on. However, he works in Jackson now).
Good luck! If I can be of any help, let me know.
