There have been proposed budget cuts for the Maternal Child Health Program, as well as The Public Clinic.
Nurses gave their reasoning to the county legislators on why these programs are so important to the county.
"Who's going to provide services for the community, and Maternal Child Health, and the immunizations, STDS, refugees. There is a big list of what our functions are," said Maternal Child Heath Nurse, Stacey Farrell.
"We feel that all of Oneida County will suffer and won't be able to be taken care of the way they should be taken care of," said Marina Kistner, a R.N. at Oneida County Health Department.
Kistner says if these cuts are made, she will lose her job of 15 years.
She also says they take care of all the refugees who need their help. Many of those refugees don't have doctors or insurance.
Stacey Farrell says that the vote for the proposed budget cuts will take place November 16.
She hopes that the legislators are fully aware of the consequences if cuts are made.
