Nursing Workforce Challenges And ‘Us & Them’ Explores America’s Transgender Athlete Laws On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, as part of our continuing series on West Virginia’s workforce, we look at the demands for nurses, during the pandemic and now. Emily Rice brings us this story.

Also, in this show, West Virginia University’s Board of Governors met Tuesday to receive updates on the university’s proposed cuts to programs and faculty. Chris Schulz has more.
