Officials: Connecticut nursing shortage could become crisis

AP/Hartford Courant, August 18, 2008

Connecticut's nursing shortage could reach crisis proportions if more education programs and funds are not made available, according to healthcare advocates. The advocates attribute the problem, in part, to a shortage of instructors and the limited number of spots available in existing nursing programs statewide for people who want to enroll. Several nurses, instructors, and others in the field are now awaiting word on whether a proposed $185,000 federal grant will be approved for the Connecticut State University System's nursing programs to help offset the shortage.
