At a time when many Americans are in desperate need of a job, the field of nursing will soon be in desperate need of Americans.
Ethan Nowaczyk, a student from UM-Twin Cities, said he feels he was wrongly denied admission into the nursing program last spring.
"This is the thing I want to do. I want to help people. I feel like I'm definitely qualified but I wasn't accepted, and that's a lot of people's problem," Mr. Nowaczyk said. "I have good grades. But the school only has so many spots. It's just frustrating that they have a shortage, but I want to do this and I can't."
