The University of Nebraska is asking for $91 million from the state's reserve fund to help pay for four projects aimed at improving healthcare education.

UNL President J.B. Milliken says the university system needs to turn out more nurses to fill what he calls a critical nursing shortage in the state.

Milliken on Wednesday outlined a plan to use state money for the projects, which also would use another anticipated $300 million from private donors and other sources.

The plan includes:

A new University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing
in Lincoln.

A new cancer research facility at UNMC.

An expansion of the nursing facility at the University of
Kearney campus.

And, planning and designing a new Veterinary Diagnostic Center
in Lincoln.
