(St. Paul, MN) — Governor Walz is taking action to address the nursing shortage in Minnesota. He announced yesterday that he will direct two-point-four million dollars into the state’s free program to train nursing assistants. It will provide free training, books, and uniforms, and covers the cost of the certification exam. The news comes as 15 thousand Twin Cities and Duluth nurses gave a ten-day notice of strikes for three days starting September 12th.
