ALBANY, GA (WALB) - There's some good news for the health care industry.  Several dozen new nurses will soon join the workforce.

Thirty-nine nursing graduates were pinned Wednesday night at Darton College, along with fifteen Sophomores who hope to earn their degrees soon.

The graduates will go on to take a state-required nursing exam.

Darton's interim dean of nursing says her students are ready to put their studies into practice.

"Bright  outlook.  All of our graduates so far have jobs.  There's a great need for nursing still in this area, and across the country as a matter of fact," said Darton's Interim Dean of Nursing Epesy Bryant.

Nursing Student Darragh McCollum said, "I actually got a job at Duke University, so I'll be working in the trauma surgical step-down unit.  And hopefully, if I pass boards, which I'll be studying for a couple months, and once I do that I'll start work."

Darragh McCollum is one of Darton's first nursing students to complete much of her coursework online.
