    Abstract

    Carmilla Black wants to be a pediatric nurse, and that's good news for a city looking for minority health care workers. She likes medicine and children and thinks the career would be a good fit for her personality. The Rufus King High School senior is not sure if she'll attend college in Wisconsin, Tennessee or Minnesota, but she definitely knows that she'll work somewhere in the Milwaukee area once she completes her schooling. To ensure that Black and other graduates with similar interests don't change their minds, local health care professionals are bumping up their minority recruitment efforts to keep students interested in health-related fields and, more importantly, to keep them in Milwaukee.
