The medical center offers 28 different degree programs and serves close to 3,000 students annually.
The University of Mississippi Medical Center School of Nursing offers six nursing programs. These programs include a traditional BSN, accelerated BSN, MSN, RN to MSN, DNP, and PhD program. The School of Nursing was founded in 1948 which makes it the first school of nursing in the state. The school gives students access to four on-campus hospitals for their clinical placements. Along with the on-campus hospitals, the school of nursing partners with a variety of clinics throughout the region. The accelerated programs and the paths for registered nurses offer flexible class schedules to accommodate students that want to further their education.
