Group gathers in Hartford in support of endangered nurse-training program

Hartford Courant, December 9, 2009
Students, state legislators, journalists, and nurse advocates held a press conference at the Connecticut Legislative Office Building to protest the cut of a state-subsidized nurse-training program. Gov. M. Jodi Rell recently decided to suspend the heavily subsidized program to save $1.7 million to help close a $600 million deficit in the state budget. Advocates said suspending the program is short-sighted, not only because a nursing shortage looms in the future, but because jobs are so scarce. The press conference was organized by District 1199, New England Health Care Employees Union.
