The national nursing shortage is expected to reach 260,000 by 2025.

Training new nurses is essential to filling this gap.

Southwestern Michigan College seeks to renovate and expand its Nursing and Health Education Building which will allow the college to admit more students into health programs and better prepare students for the demands of the health care industry.
