KCTCS to expand nursing programs at all schools

The Kentucky Community and Technical College System recently approved a plan to support the expansion of nursing programs at all KCTCS colleges.

Demand for registered nurses in Kentucky far exceeds supply. In 2018, KCTCS awarded 840 nursing credentials — that filled 31% of the state’s total need. Increased funding all allow all 16 KCTCS colleges to hire more nursing faculty and provide year-round course offerings.

The increase is expected to grow the number of nursing graduates by 25% annually.
