The NNNO strongly urges your support of the American Nursing Association's Dear Colleague Letter: It's Time to Invest in Nursing
Representatives Lois Capps, RN (D-CA) and Steven LaTourette (R-OH), who co-chair the House Nursing Caucus have circulated a letter soliciting support for $200 million in fiscal year (FY) 2009 funding for nursing workforce development programs. If a large number of Representatives sign onto the Capps/LaTourette letter, nursing will be in a better position to receive this funding.
The Deadline for Members to sign onto the Capps/LaTourette letter
is today Friday, March 14.
The ANA has also included a list
of House congressional members who have signed on. Please visit this website
to find your member of Congress and make sure they sign on to this important letter.
It is time for nurses to UNITE around this very important issue!
