Nursing Workforce Reauthorization Act Passes House

November 3, 2019

The U.S. House of Representatives on Oct. 28 passed H.R. 728, Title VIII Nursing Workforce Reauthorization Act. Introduced in January by Rep. Dave Joyce (R-OH) and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), co-chairs of the Congressional Nursing Caucus, this bipartisan legislation would reauthorize programs and grants that support the recruitment and retention of professionals for our nation's nursing workforce. The House passed H.R. 728 by a unanimous voice vote.

"Title VIII is the largest source of federal funding for nursing education. These programs are vital to prepare nurses to provide care across all practice settings and in rural and medically underserved communities," said American Nurses Association President Ernest Grant, PhD, RN, FAAN. "I want to thank Rep. Dave Joyce and the U.S. House of Representatives for passing this unanimously. ANA appreciates Mr. Joyce for his continued leadership on nursing issues."

ANA Responds to Trump Administration's Executive Order Expanding Medicare Services

October 11, 2019

The Trump administration on Oct. 4 issued an executive order that aims to expand health-related services for millions of Americans and eliminate burdensome regulatory requirements for providers in the Medicare program.

ANA is pleased that the Trump administration recognizes the value of advanced practice registered nurses' (APRNs) services to health care consumers and the Medicare program by proposing to:

  • Eliminate excessive supervision requirements that prevent APRNs from delivering appropriate diagnosis and quality care.
  • Provide equal pay for equal work, with Medicare reimbursing APRNs at the same level as physicians for the same procedures.
  • Enable APRNs to practice to the full extent of their education and clinical training.

ANA looks forward to working with the administration on the details of these policies and implementation through the regulatory process. Read more
