AAACN Supports Distribution of Stimulus Funds for Nursing Education

AAACN added their support to a letter to the Department of Health & Human Services and Health Resources and Services Administration urging the equitable distribution of $200 million in stimulus funding between Title VIII Nursing Workforce Development Programs and Title VII Health Professions Training Programs over fiscal years 2009 and 2010. The letter requested that half of the $200 million be distributed equally to the three loan repayment/scholarship/traineeship programs under Title VIII, which include the Nurse Loan Repayment and Scholarship Program, the Nurse Faculty Loan Program, and the Advanced Education Nursing Grants/Traineeships.
