AC Nursing Program keeps pace with local needs

Amarillo, TX - Texas is facing a shortage of nurses but one local college is ensuring it doesn't affect our area.

According to the Texas Department of State Health by 2020 Texas will have 71,000 fewer nurses than today.

There's been a critical need of nurse instructors in our area also. That's made it difficult to get into nursing school.

Amarillo College has filled almost all of their nursing positions made vacant by retiring nurses.

Students are directed to the licensed vocational nursing programs.
