WVC 30 - 7 B- 1 §30-7B-1. Legislative findings.

The Legislature finds that through the study of the nursing shortage study commission, it is essential that there be qualified registered professional nurses and other licensed nurses to meet the needs of patients. Without qualified nurses, quality patient care is jeopardized. The nursing population is aging and fewer students are entering nursing programs.

Therefore, the Legislature declares to ensure quality health care, recruitment and retention of nurses is important and a center is needed to address the nursing shortage crisis in West Virginia.
