Tuesday on Lake Effect : Nursing Shortage, Mixtape with Mark Erelli

Tuesday on Lake Effect:

There’s a major nursing shortage looming in Wisconsin, and we’ll get two views of the profession on today’s show. First, Mount Mary University teams with two area community colleges to increase the number of bachelor’s degree nurses in the region. Plus, the nursing shortage is just one of the issues Christie Watson addresses in a new memoir about the 20 years she spent in the profession. And singer-songwriter Mark Erelli celebrates the tradition of the mixtape with his new album, a collection of songs he’s covered over the years.


  • Dr. Cheryl Bailey, Mount Mary University
  • Christie Watson, author, The Language of Kindness
  • Mark Erelli, singer-songwriter (with Jake Armerding)
