AACN Expresses Concern Over the President's FY 2015 Budget

AACN expresses concern over the President’s FY 2015 Budget recommendations, which may impact the nation’s future supply of registered nurses. With the budget released earlier this week and details continuing to emerge, the Obama Administration recommends level funding for the Nursing Workforce Development programs (Title VIII, Public Health Service Act) at $223.841 million and near level funding for the National Institute of Nursing Research at $140.452 million.

AACN is committed to preparing the next generation of nursing advocates who can purposefully and effectively contribute to shaping public policy at the national, state, and local levels. AACN offers a fully array of grassroots opportunities, informational resources, professional development offerings, and networking platforms to ensure that students, faculty, and nursing stakeholders are well prepared to engage in the policymaking process.
