HHS Awards $82 Million to Strengthen Nursing Workforce

Earlier this week, the Department of Health & Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, announced $82 million in awards to bolster nursing scholarship and education loan repayment programs. The awards will provide financial support to nurses and nursing students in exchange for service at health care facilities with a shortage of nurses. These awards support the recommendations made in the IOM report, Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, which seek to strengthen nurse education and training.
