Gov. Chris Sununu will request a $24 million capital investment into the state’s nursing education programs if re-elected, he announced Tuesday, pledging “the most robust investment ever” into fixing a persistent nursing shortage.
Speaking before students and educators at Manchester Community College, which runs licensed nursing assistant and registered nurse programs, Sununu presented a plan to boost training for intermediate and advanced nursing certifications through the state’s community college and university systems.
