Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) on Wednesday announced more than $1.6 million in grants to help fund six nurse training programs statewide.
The grants are intended to help California residents find jobs that pay at least the average state hourly wage of $22.51 while also boosting California's supply of health care workers.
Funds to train registered nurses and licensed vocational nurses will go to these five Los Angeles area hospitals:
- Brotman Medical Center;
- Century City Doctors Hospital;
- East Los Angeles Doctors Hospital;
- Olympia Medical Center; and
- USC University Hospital.
