Gov. Kathy Hochul says she’s out to make it easier to become a health care worker in New York

ALBANY, N.Y. — With more than 9,000 job openings across the state, Gov. Kathy Hochul says she wants to grow New York’s health care work force by making it easier to become a health care worker.

“Easier means relieving the financial crunch that is required to get the education necessary. So today, we’re here to announce the 1,000 winners of our ‘Nurses for the Future’ program,” Hochul said.
