MONROE, La. - (1/30/19) One of Louisiana's larger health insurers is providing a $300,000 grant to help ease our shortage of nurses.
Blue Cross-Blue Shield and the Workforce Development Board are working together to train 180 nurses and 6 clinical instructors to teach at non-traditional times.
Blue cross blue shield president Michael Tipton says their foundation is committing to improving health across Louisiana.
Tipton said, "When a community, like this one, steps forward and says, 'We recognize the issue. Here's a local and collaborative game plan to produce the number of new nurses we need to save lives.' That's a no brainer for us."
The program is expected to provide more than 15,000 patient care services.
