Valdosta -- Students and staff and at a South Georgia University lend a hand in the nursing shortage.

Students and faculty in Valdosta State Univeristy's College of Nursing held their annual Scholarship Day this morning.

 Nearly 200 people saw student presentations and talked with recruiters from 20 regional health care agencies.

Students say because of the nursing shortage there are many job opportunities. "The shortage is big right now and a lot of area are looking to recruit to a lot of nurses. So our prospects are looking good," said Nursing Student Adrienne Brown.

VSU's Nursing College will graduate 40 students in May and nearly all of them already have jobs.
