More than 60 national nursing organizations, including the American Nurses Association and the American Association of College of Nursing, are closely watching proposed bipartisan legislation to continue federal nursing workforce development programs under Title VIII of the Public Health Service Act.

The bill, introduced this summer by U.S. Reps. Lois Capps (D-Calif.), BSN, MA, RN, founder and co-chairwoman of the Congressional Nursing Caucus, and David Joyce (R-Ohio), would continue funding for nursing education at all levels, and provide support to educate nurses in rural and underserved communities from fiscal year 2016 through fiscal year 2020. It also would identify and define clinical nurse specialists, highlight the clinical nurse leader role and officially define “nurse-managed” health clinics, according to AACN.
