The American Nurses Association (ANA) strongly supports President Obama’s latest FY 2010 budget, which provides $1 billion for the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) health care workforce development programs, and improves access to health care in underserved areas. The proposed budget includes $263 million, an increase of $92 million, in Title VIII programs to address the growing nursing shortage. It provides $125 million, a 238% increase, to fund nurses serving in critical shortage facilities, supplies increased funds for scholarship and loan repayment awards, and adds an estimated 550 additional nurse faculty educators to ensure nursing schools have the capacity to educate and train the next generation of nurses.
