Jacquelyn Brownlow, DNP, RN, was recently named president of the Mississippi Organization for Associate Degree Nursing board of directors. Brownlow joined CCC faculty as a full-time Associate Degree Nursing instructor in 2012.

The MOADN primarily works toward retaining the Registered Nurse title and the range of practice for the ADN graduate. The organization is also involved with nursing issues to ensure quality health care for Mississippi consumers. It aids in seamlessly transitioning nursing students from the ADN program to the BSN program. ADN programs provide adult learners, minorities, and residents with access to a career in health care.

Brownlow entered the nursing profession as a Licensed Practical Nurse after studying at Mississippi Delta Community College. She then attended Holmes Community College for an associate degree in nursing and went on to receive a bachelor’s in nursing and a master’s with an emphasis in nursing education from Delta State University. In 2013, Brownlow earned a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree from the University of Southern Mississippi. She teaches her students to overcome barriers with prayer, hard work, and faith.

The Greenwood, Mississippi, native aims to always put her best foot forward in career-related matters and other aspects outside of work, including education, family, and social interactions. She has learned firsthand that the things most cherished are the things requiring the highest amount of effort. Brownlow is a history enthusiast who immerses herself in documentaries about Greek mythology and American history. She believes an institution can only improve members of a community by empowering them through education.

Beverly Overton, dean of the Coahoma Community College Division of Health Sciences, views Brownlow’s new role as an achievement.

“I am very proud of her accomplishments in MOADN,” said Overton. “She has been very active in the organization for several years. We are looking forward to her leadership as the President of MOADN.”

The 2020 Board of Directors serving alongside Brownlow are Rebecca Fairchild, Ph.D., RN (Alcorn State University), Stephanie Roberts, DNP, MBA, RN, CHSE (Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College), Tonya Harbison, Ph.D., FNP-BC, RN (Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College), Nan Pritchard, MSN, RN, CNE (Jones College), Dr. Jane Hulon (Director-at-Large; President of Copiah-Lincoln Community College), Alicia Lundstrom, Ph.D., RN, CNE (William Carey University), and Deborah Spring, Ph.D., RN (Alcorn State University).
