RRC Polytech to gain 30 new nursing seats through MB funding

The Government of Manitoba has announced that it will be creating 30 new nursing seats at Red River College Polytechnic through an investment of $830K. The new seats will aim to address MB’s nursing shortage. The funding will go towards a variety of initiatives and resources, such as classroom renovations, laboratory equipment, and other supports for the additional students. RRC Polytech had previously had to cut 75 seats in 2019 due to a reduced operating grant from MB. “The seats being announced today are in high demand,” said RRC President Fred Meier. “After today, we’re able to say we’re accepting 180 students annually.” CBC| Winnipeg Free Press (Acct.
