  • Mississippi needs 3,000 registered nurses
  • Nurses leaving profession for better pay, mental health reasons

There are almost 3,000 registered nurse vacancies in Mississippi pushing the state’s hospitals to the brink of failure.

Some hospitals have had even greater losses since that number was released, as much as 40% amid a pandemic that refuses to relent, according to Kim Hoover, chief operating officer of Mississippi Hospital Association. It’s Center for Quality and Workforce gathered the data.

“Hospitals will continue to close beds until they close doors,” she said. “We will be dealing with it for years to come. Our state could however, raise hospital staffing to top priority and bring nursing leaders to the table when discussing potential solutions.”

Chief nursing officers across Mississippi report nurses are submitting their resignations “on a daily basis,” Hoover said.

The reasons behind the nursing exodus are varied. Some are leaving for high-paying travel nursing positions with price tags Mississippi cannot match; others because they’re mentally and physically exhausted.
