AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Georgia Southwestern University is moving forward with a long-awaited project that will prepare more students for health care jobs.
Land is being cleared near the campus main entrance for a new Health and Human Sciences Complex.
The state provided $6.5 million for it. The facility will help the university graduate more nurses.
"What we're going to do first is a nursing facility and classroom space, with a shortage of nurses in the state of Georgia and the nation we need nurses soon as possible," said Stephen E. Snyder, GSW University Relations Director.
The official groundbreaking will take place in a few weeks.
