NCC  advocates for NINR, nursing workforce funding

In a letter to the House Committee on Appropriations, the Nursing Community Coalition (NCC) requested fiscal year 2022 funding of at least $314.472 million for Title VIII Nursing Workforce Development Programs and at least $200.782 million for the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR). “As the nation continues to address COVID-19, it is imperative that funding for these programs reflects the heightened needs of our communities, especially as nurses across the country remain on the frontlines of this public health crisis,” the letter said. AONL is one of 63 national nursing organizations that make up the NCC. (NCC letter, 11/19/21)
