Indiana is continuing to combat nursing shortages following the pandemic. In fact, according to the Indiana Hospital Association, the state will need to add around 5,000 more nurses by 2031. Many steps have been taken to help relieve the shortage, but one local university is teaming up with Ascension St. Vincent to address the issue at the forefront. Luckily, this time of year seems to bring a renewed interest in nursing programs statewide.
