Nursing Bill Passes Senate

The Senate has passed a bill that could help alleviate one key healthcare crisis and open new opportunities for healthcare PR pros: The Nurse Reinvestment Act (S. 1864) would
provide for public education campaigns promoting the benefits of nursing (a significant avenue of opportunity for communications and marketing professionals) and would establish
faculty loan programs and a National Nurse Service Corps. The bill must also be approved by the house before being sent to President Bush for a signature.
