Educational Programs

As an employee of NMHS, you will be encouraged to advance in your career and to enhance your job performance. As incentive, NMHS has developed several educational and academic programs designed to help you grow professionally.

New Employee Orientation

New Employee Orientation is a comprehensive program designed to welcome new employees, familiarize them with our mission, vision, and values, connect them to our culture of patient- and family-centered care, and meet all initial educational requirements. New employees benefit from a variety of speakers representing various areas of the organization and are provided with the information and tools needed for a successful career as part of the NMHS team.

The program consists of New Employee Orientation and Culture Day. NEO is the employee’s first day of employment and includes employee benefit information and all mandatory educational requirements for various accrediting and licensing agencies. Culture Day provides new employees their first glimpse into the culture of NMHS. Topics include mission, vision, C.A.R.E.S. values, critical success factors, behavioral standards, and patient- and family-centered care.

 

This program is hosted by the NMHS Education Department and is held in the Education Center at North Mississippi Medical Center-Tupelo.
All full and part-time employees are required to attend New Employee Orientation and Culture Day. PRN employees may complete New Employee Orientation online and attend Culture Day.
