By Sarah Falcone and published by

Florida recently made headlines when the Justice Department charged 25 defendants with involvement in the fake nursing diploma scam. But now, the state is getting positive press, thanks to a “historic” investment in nursing education. Florida has allocated over $125 million for nursing education, salary, and recruitment incentives.

“There has long been a need for nurses in Florida,” Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said in a news release. “Especially as our state is growing, and we want to continue to support these front-line heroes.”
