ALBANY, GA (WALB) - America's nursing shortage is growing. Darton College's nursing program is also growing as it tries to get more health care workers into the workforce.

The college held a ceremonial groundbreaking Wendesday afternoon on a 25,000 square foot, $4 million nursing and health sciences building.

Construction should take about a year.

"It basically is the impetus of the growth at the college for the past 10 or 15 years, it's probably one of the most exciting capitol projects that we've experienced," said Dr. Peter Sireno, Darton College President.

Darton leaders say 32 percent of nurses in our 38 county area graduated from Darton.

The nursing building will house two large lecture halls, classrooms, laboratories, and faculty offices.
