    I really have no idea about staffing or job market for nursing. I'm still a student. However, I have heard that things aren't that bad. They need nurses just like everyone else does....

    Nah, we left MS due to my hubby getting a GREAT job offer in Arkansas when he graduated from MSU... I wasn't even a nursing student then... I didn't start nursing school until we had lived here for a year and then I decided to go back..

    I also know little about nursing salaries or conditions in Mississippi. I left Mississippi as a dialysis equipment tech in 1991 for a better position(more money) in Arkansas(Memphis Area). I worked in dialysis for about 23 years at various positions , the last 10yrs with a major provider. I finally realized that nurses seem to be the only ones that get any respect in the dialysis field. (But, that's another story). I do know that generally the 3 state area around Memphis, TN, in Tennessee, Arkansas & Mississippi within approx a 50 mile radius seems to benefit, salary wise, because of Memphis being a mega-medical city with a high demand for nurses & comparably high salaries . I believe nurses in the remainder of Arkansas, with the exception of the Little Rock area, are probably not paid as well.

    I see some of you left Mississippi to practice in other southern states, I was just curious to why some of you chose to leave MS to practice nursing?

    Is the health care system/job market that bad for MS nurses?
    Hey NurseKay,
    When I graduated from nursing school, the job market in North MS was kind of tight, so I went to AL. A couple of months after starting my job in Alabama-they had PLENTY of jobs in MS then..... :chuckle ...Oh well.......

    Hi burntout, Go figure something like that would happen. Do you plan on moving back to Mississippi or no way?
