ANA Urges You to E-mail Your Congressional
Delegation - Nurse Reinvestment Act
On December 20, both the House of Representatives and
the Senate passed the Nurse Reinvestment Act. Although
the bills differ in some respects, both would authorize loan
repayment programs and scholarships
for nursing students,
and public service announcements to encourage more
people to enter the nursing profession.
ANA is concerned that Congress has failed to take action to merge and renact the Nurse Reinvestment Act. The longer this action is delayed, the more likely this bill will be lost among other Congressional priorities. We need your help to urge Congress to make the final push to enact the Nurse Reinvestment Act.
Do not delay! Now is the time to contact your delegation.
