ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Darton college nursing program helps ease the shortage of nurses by getting more of them into the workforce.

Sixty graduates took part in a Pinning Ceremony on Thursday night.

Family members turned out to support the graduates who join more than three thousand who have graduated from Darton's program.

It's important to the healthcare industry and a big deal for the graduates.

"There are some nursing students who are the very first in their family to graduate from college with any type of degree, and southwest Georgia is still rural, so may of them will be making more money than their parents did," Sheila Phillips, Asst. Professor of Nursing.

Fifty sophomore pinning candidates who are still studying were also recognized at tonight's ceremony.
