The American Association of Colleges of Nursing says there is a nursing shortage, but the number of new nurses is on the rise.

It might be a little early for graduations, but Saturday was the perfect day for one local college to graduate their first ever class in a field where help is always needed.

West Virginia Junior College graduated their first ever nursing class in Morgantown. 17 fresh graduates marched to Pomp and Circumstance to being their new journey of their career.

5 News spoke to one graduate, and she said it feels great knowing all the hard work finally paid off.

"It was a long, bumpy road, but we stuck together. This has been a passion of mine, so I'm excited to jump into it and help people," said Rachel Moats, a graduate.

The director of the of the nursing program, Faith Campbell, said becoming a nurse is one of the hardest thing a recent graduate of nursing will face is applying to become a registered nurse on the road ahead.
