LAC Hosts Nursing Forum

Posted: Updated:

PINEVILLE, La. (KALB News Channel 5)--Nurses and other healthcare professionals took a look at some of the workforce issues nurses have to deal with Wednesday.

The Louisiana Action Coalition hosted the gathering, and one of the main topics  was how to strengthen the nursing profession in order to help meet growing health care challenges.
One of those challenges will be growing Cenla's own nursing workforce as the healthcare landscape right here at home changes.

"How do we meet the needs of our community, especially with the downsizing of the charity hospital system? Access to care is going to be really going to be the big priority in this community for a long time," Al Velotta, a Christus Cabrini Hospital employee, said.

The event also included a panel discussion on the effects of patient care.
