Addressing America's Nursing Shortage

Congressman David Wu (OR) mailed an update last week to his constituents describing legislation he is working on to make health care more affordable and accessible to families in Oregon. Here is Congressman Wu's statement that he included on addressing the nation's nursing shortage:

"Nurses are on the frontlines of health care today. Yet every day, there are 120,000 nursing positions vacant, with the shortage expected to rise to 400,000 in 20 years. Congressman David Wu is a co-sponsor of HR 4903 to develop initiatives that encourage more students to consider nursing, as well as promote nurse-retention efforts and public health programs run by nurses in coordination with community organizations."

The National Nurse Team acknowledges and appreciates Congressman Wu's support.
