Nursing students honored for efforts during hurricane

Many east Texans came together recently to help thousands of hurricane evacuees in our cities.

Today was a time to honor some of them. A ceremony was held this afternoon to thank the Tyler Junior College vocational nursing educators.

Close to 200 students, along with faculty, volunteered 3 thousand man hours to help Gustav and Ike evacuees.

Some say it was good training for these potential nurses.

"I think for a lot of them it reaffirmed their desire to be a nurse and let them know some of the things they will be doing as they graduate," said Ginger Christiansen, the TJC LVN Coordinator.

Nursing students helped at shelters in Tyler and Jacksonville.
