CLARKSDALE – Coahoma Community College joined the discussion with nurses across the state regarding current legislation impacting the healthcare profession during the recent Mississippi Statewide Nursing Summit.

Students of CCC’s Associated Degree Nursing program attended the 22nd annual legislative and policy event, hosted Tuesday, Feb. 9, in Jackson, MS.

Sponsored by the Mississippi Nurses’ Association, the summit is designed to educate attendees on the importance of being engaged in the political process, offer political insight into this year’s legislative climate and encourage attendees to embrace leadership in the nursing profession. 

Among the speakers addressing the more than 800 nursing students, nurses and advanced practice registered nurses in attendance were Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant; author and motivational speaker Dr. Samuel Jones; MS House of Representatives (R-Brookhaven) Becky Currie; and Mississippi University for Women’s Dr. Johnnie Sue Wijewardane.

Originally organized in 1993, the Nursing Summit gives current and future nurses an opportunity to discuss the changes occurring in nursing and how these changes will affect the profession of nursing in Mississippi.
