Wow. So how does McDonnell know how to best educate medical professionals? Was this decision an effort to improve patient care or was it a business deal?

Reappointment of Dragas (with the online class projects) now becomes more transparent.

The dangerous nursing union that hikes pay and medical costs, as well as keeping bad and unsafe nurses on the job is now trying to protect its monopoly kickbacks from the nursing schools!

Here's to Fighting Bob!

That's Bob McDonnell - just git'er done!

Any time you have several organizations who are competing but trying at the same time to form a coalition or committee, you increase the bureaucracy by double the number of members, and then squared.

It's about choices for the students and solving problems by making and implementing a decision, not talking it to death.
Go Bob!

Competition is good but it is interesting that Govenors have created this school. I wonder if the course work and process is a mail order degree or really a Bacaloriat level program. Who oversees this. Oviously not the Virginia Association of Colleges of Nursing or any Virginia ACCADEMIC organization. And why not consult the current system.

I would much rather have a nurse that learned on a web site than one that learned in college that teaches lies like evolution and global warming.

Every time I see nurses online, they are not wearing much. I think I see why the governor wants more nurses online!
