Experts predict growing need for nurses
The need for nurses is only expected to grow in the coming years, and more colleges are looking to train students for these in-demand careers.

Nurses arrange walk for cancer patients at U. of Pa. Hospital
Briana Capaldo and Chelsey Billig, transplant nurses on the oncology ward at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, organized a walk for patients recovering from chemotherapy and other traumatic treatments in efforts to lift their spirits. T-shirts and race bibs were given to participants, who walked or moved in wheelchairs anywhere from two to 12 laps around the ward, which was decorated with balloons, and cake, pretzels and soft drinks were provided.
