MNA Ready and Willing Survey – COVID-19

Additional qualified nurses are needed to supplement hospital/clinic capacity during the COVID-19 crisis. MNA is asking retired nurses, those who have experienced reduced hours or loss of employment, and those working part-time who are willing to re-enter the workforce and/or transition to full-time, to complete the MNA Ready and Willing Survey. Hospitals are already requesting names of interested nurses!

By submission of the survey, you authorize the Mississippi Nurses’ Association to provide your information to healthcare related facilities/clinics during the COVID-19 pandemic.  If you are available to assist, please complete this survey to add your name/contact information to the contact list. 
Mississippi needs you now more than ever – your education, experience and expertise – to assist in this crisis.
