The Mississippi Board of Nursing Office of Nursing Workforce presented scholarships to nursing schools in Mississippi during their regular business meeting on July 26. Holmes Community College received $12,000 in funding which will help nursing students in the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) and Practical Nursing (PN) programs. Holmes ADN Chair Dr. Alice Austin accepted the monies on behalf of the college.

Holmes offers the ADN program on the Ridgeland and Grenada campuses and the PN program in Ridgeland, Grenada and at the Attala Center in Kosciusko. The ADN program offers a curriculum for those seeking an ADN degree and to qualify to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX) as well as licensing from the Mississippi State Board of Nursing. For more information about the ADN program, contact Shiquita Haralson at or (601) 605-3439.

The PN program prepares the individual to assist in providing general nursing care requiring basic knowledge of the biological, physical, behavioral, psychological and sociological sciences. This care is performed under the direction of a registered nurse, licensed physician or dentist. This program provides intensive preparation for the NCLEX-PN Exam and transitioning from student to employee. Holmes offers two different options: the full-time day track and a hybrid option. For more information about the PN program, contact Reagan Dilmore at or (601) 605-3345.
