Connecticut Public, August 2022
Connecticut launched a new higher education initiative Wednesday to bridge the state’s shortage of nurses and behavioral health workers.
The three year program is designed to support students pursuing degrees in nursing and social work. “Connecticut’s nurses have worked tirelessly as they have battled this global pandemic,” Terrence Chung, president of the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities system, said. “And our social workers and our counselors have done equal duty, helping thousands across our state, navigate COVID darkest days.”
