School of nursing program to begin at Belhaven
“From Governor Phil Bryant to the presidents of all state private and public institutions and most importantly, leaders of nearly every major hospital, we have received unanimous and unprecedented support to begin our new nursing program. I have never been involved in the launch of a new academic focus that has generated as much interest and support as our new School of Nursing has,” said Dr. Roger Parrott, President of Belhaven University.
On Thursday, June 19, Belhaven University’s School of Nursing received approval from the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning for its Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). The need for nursing and nursing degree programs in Mississippi are an urgent reality. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the employment of nurses is expected to grow 25 percent through 2020.
Dr. Barbara Johnson, Dean of Nursing, said the program will fulfill a need.
