Welcome to the School of Nursing's Office of Student Affairs. If we can assist you, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Thank you for your interest in the School of Nursing at the University of Mississippi Medical Center! As the project manager for recruitment and marketing, I am here to promote our school and coordinate our recruitment activities. My job is to manage all marketing and branding efforts for the school while expanding our areas of recruitment. Part of my role in the Office of Student Affairs is to coordinate new-student orientations and assist in all student affairs events. Senior BSN students that have demonstrated high-academic standards will have the unique opportunity to join our student ambassador leadership team and assist with recruitment activities sharing what they have learned with future nursing students.
The School of Nursing at the University of Mississippi Medical Center is THE flagship nursing school in the state, and we strive to preserve that legacy in all that we do. For happenings within the school, find links to our school newsletter and Facebook page below.
I am happy assisting current and prospective students with any questions they may have about our programs as well as coordinating new opportunities for the school to expand its presence. Please feel free to contact me if I can help you in any way.

Congratulations on taking the first step to expanding your education and looking into a field with limitless possibilities! As the project manager for admissions, I am here to talk to students and prospective students about each of our nursing programs and specialty tracks. Working hand-in-hand with our project manager for recruitment and marketing, my job is to provide information about the programs offered through the School of Nursing and to walk students through the application process by informing them of admission criteria, prerequisites, application deadlines and much more.
In an effort to expand our services I set up personal meetings, perform transcript evaluations and act as the off-campus housing liaison for UMMC. These meetings are usually brief, but give prospective students face-to-face access to one of our Student Affairs members who can answer program-specific questions or direct them to the appropriate contact. Our unofficial transcript evaluations are an easy way for us to help students realize how close they are to becoming eligible applicants and reaching their goal of a becoming a bachelor's, master's, or doctorally prepared nurse.
