    On July 19, the House Full Appropriations Committee marked up and approved the FY 2018 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education (LHHS-ED) bill by a partyline vote of 28-22. Below is some additional information based on the House LHHS-ED report language. It is important to note that Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA) offered an amendment to restore funding for certain Title VII Health Professions programs and to restore the proposed $18.3 million cut to Title VIII Nursing Workforce Development programs. The amendment ultimately failed, but was an important measure in voicing opposition to these cuts.

    Title VIII Nursing Workforce Development programs: In the Committee report language, Title VIII has been consolidated under the title “Nursing Workforce Development.” Fudning for Advanced Nursing Education, Nursing Workforce Diversity, Nurse Faculty Loan Program, and Comprehensive Geriatrics do not receive separate allocations or line items.

    The Committee only details two programs: $83.1 million for NURSE Corps and $128.1 million for Nursing Workforce Development. In total, the programs would receive $211.2 million (a cut of $18.3 million, or 8 percent). In response to these proposed changes, the NC Steering Committee approved a letter that was sent to the House Appropriations Committee urging that essential funding for all individual Title VIII Programs in maintained in FY 2018.

    National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR): The NINR would receive $152.6 million (an increase of 1.5 percent). The top line funding level for all of NIH is $35.2 billion (an increase of 3.3 percent).

    American Association of Colleges of Nursing and National League for Nursing Oppose Cuts to Nursing in President’s
    FY 2018 Budget Proposal

    Impedes Growth in the Professional Nursing Workforce
    and Access to Care
    Washington, DC, May 23, 2017 - Reacting to President Trump’s proposed budget, the National League for Nursing (NLN) and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) expressed the associations’ alarm at the negative impact that certain elements of the budget will have on the nursing workforce and the nation’s access to high-quality nursing care.

    The NLN and AACN cannot support the president’s budget due to its near elimination of funding to programs that help educate the nurse and nurse educator workforce. For more than 50 years, HRSA’s Title VIII Nursing Workforce Development Programs have been a mainstay in the pipeline, ultimately improving access to, and quality of, health care in underserved communities.

    These competitive grants strengthen education programs, including faculty recruitment and retention efforts; clinical lab enhancements; loans, scholarships, and services that enable students to overcome obstacles to completing their nursing education programs. Moreover, Title VIII grants support the education of nurse faculty preparing them for a future in academia. This increases the pool of faculty during a time of shortage and allows schools of nursing to accept more qualified applicants. These programs are a direct investment in the clinicians who will provide health services to patients in all communities including in rural and underserved populations.

    Eliminating $146 million in Title VIII nursing program funding is counter intuitive to the president’s goal of increasing access and reducing costs. It is crucial that the federal investment meets current and future nursing and nurse educator demands. This cannot be relegated to private or state funding alone.

    AACN and the NLN will continue to advocate for federal support in nursing education programs that are essential to the health and well-being of our nation.

    ###
    The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) is the national voice for academic nursing representing more than 810 schools of nursing nationwide. AACN establishes quality standards for nursing education, influences the nursing profession to improve health care, and promotes public support of baccalaureate and graduate nursing education, research, and practice.

    Dedicated to excellence in nursing, the National League for Nursing is the premier organization for nurse faculty and leaders in nursing education. The NLN offers faculty development, networking opportunities, testing services, nursing research grants, and public policy initiatives to its more than 40,000 individual and more than 1,200 institutional members, comprising nursing education programs across the spectrum of higher education and health care organizations.
