Planned UWG nursing facility gets funding

Planned UWG nursing facility gets funding

CARROLLTON, Ga. -- In an effort to address a critical need in Georgia's health care industry, Governor Nathan Deal and local lawmakers have approved a $16.5 million bond offering to fund a new building for the School of Nursing at the University of West Georgia.

The measure was part of the $18.3 billion state budget for the upcoming fiscal year.

In crafting the budget, lawmakers agreed that the state's long-term ability to meet its health care needs would hinge in part on its ability to address its worsening lack of nurses. A recent estimate found that Georgia is projected to have a shortage of more than 37,000 nurses by 2020.

"We are grateful to Governor Deal, to our entire legislative delegation, to other influential people who helped us get to this stage, and to our School of Nursing colleagues and Dean Kathryn Grams, who developed a strong proposal supported with a first-class program," said Dr. Beheruz N.
