Tonya Harbison, PhD, FNP-BC

Education Director 


Personal Statement of Candidacy:
It would be an Honor and Privilege to serve again as the MOADN Education Director. I would consider it an Honor to receive your support and vote. My personal goals for the MOADN Education Director office include to be a Servant to the MOADN Nursing members, and the MOADN Board. Goals include maintaining the annual Spring Convention, and ensure success in securing engaging speakers which motivate and inspire nursing students, and nursing faculty. My personal goal is to represent the Associate Degree Nursing Profession as a Servant, and advocate for Registered Nurses in the local and legislative arena. Another important goal is to wisely budget the cost of providing the MOADN Spring Convention annually. My personal belief is that Associate Degree Nurses are so important to providing the essential care to patients within our communities. The Associate Degree Nurse is ready to join the workforce within two years of completion of nursing school, and provides the steady supply which is needed for the nursing workforce. Covid19 has brought many challenges to the Nursing profession, and I wish to say “Thank You!” to the Registered Nurses who worked tirelessly during this Covid19 pan endemic to provide health care in the State of Mississippi!

M-OADN/OADN involvement:
Present MOADN Education Director for 2020-2022.
Designed & Implemented with the MOADN Board members the Spring 2021 Virtual Faculty Convention in an online presentation for Nursing Faculty to attain CEUs. Guest speakers were contacted, and secured with consideration of budget limitations of the MOADN Board’s decision. Much discussion is brought to the Board table in making sound financial decisions in order to implement the annual MOADN Convention.
Designed & Implemented the Spring 2022 Vicksburg MOADN Convention. Guest speakers were contacted, and asked to speak this year without hindering our budget limitations. The speakers agreed to support MOADN without a contract for payment fees. The agenda was designed, and CEUs attained for the conference guest speakers. This process has been in design by the MOADN Board members since June of 2021. I also wish to participate in the OADN annual convention face to face this year. I would consider it an Honor to represent Mississippi Associate Degree Nurses nationally.

Other Professional Memberships and Activities:

Past MNA Director
Council on Health Affairs for two terms, four years
