Moraine Park Technical College Looking To Boost Nursing Numbers

(Beaver Dam) One of the programs Moraine Park Technical College would like to bolster on their campus in Fond du Lac is for health care education. MPTC President Bonnie Baerwald says over the next 10 years we will see a significant number of people leaving nursing and health care creating a need for those with the skills to fill those vacancies. She says for that reason they would like to expand and add a health care simulation space in Fond du Lac. She says there is a huge need for nurses. A survey was sent out earlier this month about which future business and industry needs MPTC District voters were more likely to support. Those randomly selected to get the survey have until April 25th to reply.
