A Lehigh Acres couple who lost their lives after driving into a canal Thursday night were celebrating their 39th wedding anniversary before they died.
A new study states that if Florida doesn't hire enough nurses by 2025, there could be a critical impact on our health care.
Numbers from the Florida Center for Nursing show a major shortage. In fact, there's a need to hire 12,493 nurses in Florida.
When Tyler Jones graduated from FGCU's School of Nursing nine months ago, he and his classmates had their pick of jobs.
"We certainly have needs, but we are aggressively recruiting individuals to fill those needs."
"It's always going up, with the growth of our community, baby boomers, the aging population and the growth of our health systems," Schvinski said.
Lee Memorial recently started an aggressive campaign to hire nurses. This year, they employed 115 seasonal nurses to help with the influx of winter residents.
"We offer them incentives to come back the following year, and we also give them a housing allowance," Schvinski said.
There is also a push to talk to students before they reach college, offering volunteer opportunities and class credits to middle and high school students to get them interested in the field.
While Jones feels the pinch of not having enough nurses on staff, he wouldn't change his career path.
"Nursing school can be difficult, but once you get over that hump, it's a very rewarding profession."
Some of the courses being added to the nursing curriculum include basic nutrition, chemistry, human development, and pharmacology.
