WFRV-TV segments with UW-Green Bay highlight need for 1.1 million new RNs
UW-Green Bay Nursing students Emma Mckinch and Elizabeth Horner, both juniors in the traditional four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing program, were interviewed for segments which aired during news anchor Connie Fellman’s Health Watch reports on March 2 and March 9, 2022.
The first segment features Emma Mckinch in the Aurora BayCare Nursing Skills Lab on the Green Bay Campus.
The second segment features Elizabeth Horner in the Aurora BayCare Nursing Skills Lab on the Green Bay Campus.
The segments highlight the need for 1.1 million new registered nurses (RNs) to avoid a nursing shortage, and looks at how Aurora BayCare Medical Center and UW-Green Bay have partnered to make sure nursing students are prepared for their careers after clinicals and classroom.
The segments feature both the Advocate Aurora Health Simulation Center (off campus) and the Aurora BayCare Nursing Skills Center in Wood Hall at UW-Green Bay to further students’ experience in clinicals.
