$11 Million for Nursing

According to the Miami Herald, the Wolfson Foundation donated $11 million to Miami Dade College for nursing to combat the shortage.

$11 million?

$11 million!

$11 million.

Also, according to an op ed article that I read in the same newspaper, the writer accuses the Herald of burying this news within the print edition.

Hmmm. I wonder why they didn't want everyone to know?

I think that it is great!

Why hasn't anyone stepped forward to donate so grandly to midwifery? Women are not going to stop giving birth. Obstetricians aren't increasing in number. Labor and deliver nurses...are only nurses--not practitioners.

Yes, I feel a little slighted.
