AACN Concerned That the President's FY 2009 Budget Request Will Prolong the Nursing and Nurse Faculty Shortage
Date:2/4/2008

n addition to nursing education cuts, the President's budget is calling for a complete elimination of funding for the Health Professions Education Programs (Title VII of the PSA), which would endanger the nation's ability to provide necessary health care services, especially to vulnerable populations. Cutting programs that support the preparation of physicians, pharmacists and other health professionals will likely limit the nation's supply of health care providers and add to the growing issue of health disparities and access to quality health care.

AACN is also concerned that the President has decided to level fund the National Institutes of Health, which includes the National Institute of Nursing Research. Additionally, AACN is alarmed that the President has decided to cut funding for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality by 3%.

"AACN is committed to working with Congress and other stakeholders to restore and hopefully increase funding for federal programs that support the preparation of nurse educators," said Dr. Lancaster. "Legislators must continue to make funding graduate level nursing education a top priority and invest in a long-term strategy to enable nursing schools to expand student capacity and accommodate all qualified applicants."

Specific funding levels for nursing education programs that were proposed in the President's FY 2009 budget are listed on AACN's Web site at http://www.aacn.nche.edu/Government/FY2008Chart.pdf
