STANTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware Technical Community College hosted an official unveiling ceremony to showcase the school’s new nursing wing that drew a crowd of state and New Castle County leaders.

The News Journal of Wilmington (http://delonline.us/1BFK7zv) reports Gov. Jack Markell and other officials toured the new nursing wing in the Stanton campus Monday. Students have been working in the wing, which features labs, simulators and study spaces, since last August.

School officials say the expansion was sorely needed. The nursing program had worked in the same 10,000 square-foot space even though the number of students it served has almost doubled over the last decade.

Markell said the investment was an important way to open up good health care jobs and to staff the state’s medical facilities with the best-trained workers.
