  • Letter from the Director

    Welcome! Thank you for your interest in the University of Mississippi School of Nursing. We are excited to welcome you on behalf of the Office of Student Affairs.

    In the Office of Student Affairs, it is our mission to address your non-academic needs to insure you are in the best position for academic success. We are here to assist you with the application process, to help coordinate financial aid and scholarships, as well as to inform you about your rights and responsibilities as a student. We also serve as a clearinghouse of information about programs and services that can address any needs that may arise as you pursue the completion of your nursing coursework. Simply put, we are here to help.

    The Office of Student Affairs works closely with student leaders, such as class officers and student ambassadors, to provide students with opportunities to be involved in community service efforts, to enjoy some much-needed social activities, and to promote the School of Nursing and the profession of nursing. The Office of Student Affairs provides students with career development support and opportunities for networking through events like our Ignite Career Fair.

    The Office of Student Affairs coordinates, promotes and tracks student volunteerism through the SONShine Community Service program. Through this program, students have the opportunity to learn about the needs of their community firsthand and are empowered to serve in addressing those needs.

    Finally, the Office of Student Affairs oversees the recruitment of new students into the School of Nursing programs at the Medical Center. Our student recruiter will inform you about the different program options.

    In the Office of Student Affairs, it is our privilege to serve you as you pursue your educational goals. We hope you will contact us if we may be of service.
