Biography

 Dr. Kim Welch Hoover is professor and dean at the University of Mississippi School of Nursing. In her role as dean of nursing, she provides strategic leadership for the School of Nursing by:

  • Setting overall direction for education, research, clinical practice and service;
  • Overseeing the school’s eight clinics throughout the state to provide unique graduate and undergraduate interprofessional learning opportunities and health care to underserved populations; and
  • Developing and managing the school’s collaborative partnerships in educational delivery and clinical practice. 

Prior to becoming dean, Dr. Hoover served in several associate dean positions and was responsible for academic affairs, evaluation, research, grants and the PhD program. She began her nursing career as a hospital staff nurse and managed an ambulatory care unit before moving into nursing education in the early 90s. Instrumental in building the Mississippi Office of Nursing Workforce—where she served as project director, director of research and research consultant,—she is often sought as a data consultant at the state, regional and national levels. She has facilitated strategic planning for professional organizations, the Mississippi Nursing Faculty Shortage Task Force and the Governor’s Task Force on Nursing Retention and Graduation. Dr. Hoover is an alumnus of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Executive Nurse Fellows program.

She is active on state and national committees, including a gubernatorial appointment to the State Health Data Advisory Board, in addition to maintaining memberships in the American Nurses Association, American Organization of Nurse Executives, Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, Southern Nursing Research Society and Phi Kappa Phi. She has numerous publications and presentations on workforce issues, research, evidence-based practice and strategic effectiveness.

Research Interest

 Dr. Hoover's health-systems outcomes research began with a study examining hospital organizational and nurse staffing variables and their impact on hospital patient outcomes. 

From 2000 to 2008, she collected, analyzed and disseminated nursing workforce data for the state of Mississippi through the Mississippi Office of Nursing Workforce. These data were disseminated annually in state health-plan publications and web publications. She currently serves on multidisciplinary dissertation committees involving health-services research and works with other states to begin or improve nursing workforce data collection and analysis.
