ANA is urging all nurses to contact their Senators to co-sponsor and support Title VIII nursing education and workforce funding reauthorization.

ANA is currently urging lawmakers to suppot the bipartisan Title VIII Nursing Workforce Reauthorization Act, which would reauthorize nursing workforce development programs through fiscal year 2021. Title VIII provides the largest source of federal funding for nursing education. These programs are invaluable to institutions that educate registered nurses for practice in rural and medically underserved communities.

The House has already approved this legislation: H.R. 728: Title VIII Nursing Workforce Reauthorization Act of 2019

Nursing Workforce Development has more info re legislation

Easy to complete  letter available at ANA's Action center:  Tell your Senators: Support Nursing Education
