Connecticut’s Nurse Shortage Could Become Crisis

Nurses, nursing school instructors and others in the nursing field in Connecticut (CT) are waiting to hear if a proposed $185,000 federal grant will be approved for the Connecticut State University System’s nursing programs, an Associated Press article announced earlier this week.

If approved, the money would be used to add seats to nursing programs at Central, Western, Southern and Eastern Connecticut state universities to combat the state-wide nurse shortage.  In addition, the money would help fund programs for more graduate training opportunities, scholarships and equipment.
