Sites selected for Wausau medical school
WAUSAU - Soon, more medical students will be coming to our area.

The hope is that if they train here they'll stay here.

The Medical College of Wisconsin will offer courses in Wausau.

We now know exactly where those med students will learn.

The plan had been to hold everything at Northcentral Technical College.

But Aspirus Wausau Hospital will now host medical administration classes.

Some anatomy and other spaces will still be at NTC.

The school will open in 2015.

Medical professionals in Wisconsin worry about the impact that a current nursing shortage could have on the state's health care system. We talk to a Nicolet College nursing student and a Rhinelander School District nurse about the image of nursing and how it could be affecting the decrease of nurses.

We'll take you live to Tomahawk where the School District hopes a safety roundtable session tonight will open more lines of communication between the school and community.

And we talk to an Eagle River area syrup harvester about how the cool weather is helping to create a successful syrup season.

We'll bring you all this and more tonight on Newswatch 12 - news from where you live.
