The American Nurses Association (ANA) calls on nurses to contact their Congressional leaders and speak out in opposition to proposed cuts to vital nursing programs. In an attempt to overcome a veto last month by President Bush, Congressional leaders are developing a new health funding plan for next year which includes $11 billion in spending cuts. Please make your voice heard now to ensure that nursing workforce development funding is not included in these cuts.
Contact your Member of Congress and Senators today. Tell them that now is the time to invest in nursing. For more information and a draft letter to Congress, please go to: http://rnaction.org/campaign/maintain_increased_funding_levels
