National Nursing Organization Applauds Congress for Supporting Advanced Practice Nurses’ Practice, Workforce Development and Research

“As members of the Advanced Practice Nursing community, the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists is pleased by the provisions included in the new budget package that support expanding advanced practice nurses’ scope of practice and supporting nurse workforce development and nursing.

“Specifically, the package allows the Veterans Health Administration to proceed with publishing a proposed rule supporting veterans’ access to quality care through full practice authority for advanced practice registered nurses; and funds Title VIII nurse workforce development programs and nursing research.

“These provisions not only support nurses, but also health care consumers, by ensuring that nurses are able to practice to the full extent of their skills and education, and by supporting the nursing workforce and crucial research that improves health and health care.

“We want to thank the members of Congress who voted to support these crucial provisions.”
