BLUEFIELD (WVVA)--- A group of nurses gathered in front of a local hospital to draw attention to what they say is a nursing shortage.

The group gathered in front of the Bluefield Regional Medical Center Thursday afternoon.

A spokesperson for the group tells us BRMC has 150 nurses, adding the hospital needs about 50 more nurses to better serve patients as outlined by industry standards.

The group says BRMC CEO William Hawley has canceled several meetings to talk about the nursing shortage issue.

BRMC has declined comment.
