Congress is moving, in the next two weeks, to determine FY 2004 funding levels for nurse recruitment, education, and retention initiatives including the programs established in the Nurse Reinvestment Act. ANA needs your help to secure the needed increase in funding. Specifically, ANA urges nurses to contact their Senators and Representatives to support $175 million in FY 2004 appropriations for Title VIII of the Public Health Service Act, commonly known as the Nurse Education Act (NEA).
The number for the Congressional switchboard is (202) 224-3121. Don't delay! Call your Senators and Representative today.
