AHA, AONL Support Workforce Bill

AHA and its American Organization for Nursing Leadership yesterday voiced strong support (LINK) for the Healthcare Workforce Resilience Act, bipartisan legislation that would recapture 40,000 authorized but unused visas to help address the nation’s shortage of nurses and physicians. Sens. David Perdue, R-Ga., Dick Durbin, D-Ill., Todd Young, R-Ind., and Chris Coons, D-Del., plan to introduce the bill when the Senate reconvenes.
