There is a shortage of registered nurses in Central Florida. Recent estimates show a need for over 4,500 new nurses right now and 8,400 openings in the region by 2023. However, a new college nursing degree will allow nurses currently employed to remain on the job while they add advanced skills needed in their profession.
Dean of Nursing at Seminole State College Dr. Cheryl Cicotti talked about the new nursing degree on SUNNY Across Central Florida.
