FY 2009 budget shows severe cuts in nursing programs

In response to the president’s proposed budget, the American Nurses Association criticizes what it believes is the insufficient funding for Title VIII Nursing workforce development programs. For fiscal year 2009, President Bush recommends $109,853 million in funding for Title VIII programs; this is a decrease of $46,193 million, or 29.6 percent from FY2008 funding. Title VIII programs serve to fund education programs, recruit new nurses into the profession, promote career advancement within nursing and recruit nurses to critical shortage areas.
