DOVER, Del.- Dover High School will soon have a new program, which may help ease the current nursing shortage in Delaware.

According to Principal Gene Montano, students who take part in the program would be eligible to become certified nursing assistants by the time they graduate. Montano said it would help the students and even the community. The program would be the first of its kind at a non-vocational school in Kent County, according to Montano.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for our students and our school to give back to the community and help students get the skills they need to compete in the world," Montano said.

Montano said that aside from training in the classroom, the program would allow students to train with medical professionals. The school said students could get jobs after graduation or go on to pursue a nursing degree.

Students said this could open new doors for them as they search for a career path.

Sophomore Gabrielle Green said, "I think it would be a wonderful opportunity. It gives every student the ability to find out what he or she wants to do in the future and allow them to see if nursing or the medical field is what they would like to do as a career."

If the program is given final approval by the state, it could be up and running by next school year, according to Montano.
