Governor Jay Nixon (D).

Today Governor Jay Nixon (D) visited the School of Nursing at the University of Missouri-Kansas City for the launch of Caring for Missourians, a new program that “will train more than nine hundred additional Missouri students to enter high-demand, critical-need health care fields.”

The program was established by the Missouri General Assembly in the Fiscal Year 2010 budget – providing forty million dollars to help increase health care training capacity in Missouri colleges.

Governor Nixon speaks with nursing students at a remote site and in a classroom at the UMKC School of Nursing.
