YAKIMA, Wash. -- A Yakima couple has donated $70,000, that'll help the local nursing shortage.
Al and Pat DeAtley awarded the money to YVCC's nursing program. It'll give an extra ten students a chance to earn their nursing degree, and help the school hire two more instructors.
The school currently has more than 200 qualified applicants,but there isn't room for them.
A nationwide nursing shortage is expected in the next few years.
