On September 11, sixty-one members of the Nursing Community Coalition sent letters to both the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee and the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee urging them to support and advance S.997/H.R.2056 – the United States Cadet Nurse Corps Recognition Act of 2019. This legislation recognizes nurses who served as members of the U.S. Cadet Nurse Corps During World War II and provides them with honorable discharges, medal privileges, and burial benefits.
On September 30, fifty-three members of the Nursing Community Coalition sent a letter to Congressional Leadership and key Committees expressing support for the Future Advancement of Academic Nursing (FAAN) Act (S.4396/H.R.7945) and encourage its inclusion in the next COVID-19 legislative relief package. This legislation would provide vital federal investments to ensure nursing education pipelines remain strong, not only during COVID-19, but in future public health challenges as well.
