A nursing student whistleblower who reported inadequate clinical training and was kicked out of school has been awarded $450,000 for her ordeal. Sara Castle, a nursing student at Appalachian Technical College, reported to the college's administration that she and other nursing students were not getting the required 740 hours of clinical training. She claimed she was dismissed from the college for this whistleblower report.
Castle said her aim was to protect the public and make sure that nursing students got all their clinical training.
