Last week, the House of Representatives introduced the final version of its health care reform bill – H.R. 3962, the "Affordable Health Care for America Act." While the media focused predominately on the "public option," the bill also includes many provisions that affect the nursing profession. ANA staff has highlighted the nursing provisions
within HR 3962 and categorized them by Nursing Workforce Funding, Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, and Quality. The House is expected to vote on the bill in a rare Saturday session on Nov. 7th. Please visit www.rnaction.org/healthcare
