Would four-year degrees offered by community colleges help solve nursing shortage?

Southwest Colorado Community College supports legislative effort
Lauren Richardson, Jonie Ditzler, Rob Abercrombie and Rachael Sproul check vitals on a mock patient during a nursing class Wednesday at Southwest Colorado Community College in Mancos. A bill pending in the Colorado Legislature would allow the college to offer four-year degrees for nursing students to help address a growing shortage in the industry.
Allie Enoch, nursing instructor at Southwest Colorado Community College in Mancos, shows licensed practical nursing students how to measure an infant’s head in a maternal newborn class. The college’s first class of LPN students will graduate in the spring.
