Gov. Reeves signs bill to help retain nurses
Governor Tate Reeves announced he has signed a bill designed to help keep more nurses in our state.
Senate Bill 2373 creates the ‘Skilled Nursing Home and Hospital Nurses Retention Loan Repayment Program.’
It incentivizes nurses who choose to stay and work in Mississippi after graduating from nursing school.
Those who qualify could receive up to $6,000 a year for up to three years to help repay student loans.
In a statement, the governor says “This legislation will strengthen the pipeline of medical professionals and improve the quality of care for all Mississippians.”
