To train more immigrants to become nurses... But if you are born in the USA forget it you will never be granted monies to pay for your education.

this is a good start. the fact that it is Miami-Dade college means that it will indeed be a lot of hispanic and haitian nursing students, because that is what you find in miami. but we still need nurses and there have been nursing school waiting lists for years so this extra money will be really helpful. Hopefully a lot of it will go to scholorships and good teaching.

Can someone explain to me how we can have waiting lists to get into nursing school AND a nurse shortage? It's because you are not yet a nurse when you finish a college's nursing program, you still have to pass the boards.
If BCC and MDCC would stop giving preference to immigrants and minorities for their nursing program then we probably wouldn't have a nurse shortage. They churn out "graduates" that cannot pass the boards and become an actual RN. Notice how there is no shortage of hatian LPN's.
Meanwhile, smart white people sit on the waiting lists.
Whites are more discriminated against than any minority these days.

Excuse me? Sounds like some of you are racist. You should be ashamed of yourself. Don't get so damn discouraged because you cant get into nursing school. Instead of whining, go do something about it.
