Today, the hospital announced the nurses have 48 days to be reassigned to a new location, such as working in a doctor's office within Methodist Hospital, or be laid off.

Hospital officials says the change is due the Affordable Care Act and more patients needing acute care, which requires a more skilled nurse.

They also say that hospitals across the country have been making the same changes, and while they tried to hold off as long as possible, the time has come where they've had to make the change of bringing in more skilled nurses to provide care for the patients.
