The Mississippi Board of Nursing is a Mississippi state agency charged with protecting the public through the regulation of the practice of nursing within the state. As part of its responsibilities, the Board implements the Mississippi Nurse Practice Law by issuing rules and regulations through the Administrative Code. The Board's law and code provide minimum qualifications for licensure, define fundamentals for scope of practice, and provides disciplinary processes all in the interest of public protection. The Board grants licenses to licensed practical nurses (LPNs), registered nurses (RNs), advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), and certified clinical hemodialysis technicians (CCHTs).
Founded in 1970, the Mississippi LPN Association, Incorporated (MLPNA) is the professional organization for the 14,000 LPNs in Mississippi. MLPNA is constantly striving to enhance the growth of the professional role of the Licensed Practical Nurse on the healthcare team in Mississippi.
The National Association of Licensed Professional Nurses (NALPN) is the professional organization for licensed practical nurses and licensed vocational nurses and practical/vocational nursing students in the United States.
National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) is an independent, not-for-profit organization through which boards of nursing act and counsel together on matters of common interest and concern affecting public health, safety, and welfare, including the development of nursing licensure examinations.
