FAH President and CEO Chip Kahn released the following statement on the introduction of the Nursing WIN Act:

"It’s a struggle to attract critically-needed nurses to the many parts of the United States grappling with nursing shortages. The Nursing WIN Act provides loan repayment incentives to new nursing graduates while enabling them the freedom to choose from any hospital in a critical shortage community.

"FAH applauds the bipartisan leadership of Sens. Todd Young (R-IN) and Doug Jones (D-AL) to expand eligibility for this vital program. The Nursing WIN Act provides an important lifeline for patients, communities and the new nurses that choose to serve them."
