"Nursing Science Transforms" Campaign

About AACN’s “Nursing Science Transforms” Campaign

AACN has launched this advocacy effort to spotlight the critical work of nurse scientists and to call upon Congress to protect funding for federal research agencies, including the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Nursing Research, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, among others. Recently, the President’s budget blueprint proposed that the National Institutes of Health’s budget be cut by 20% ($5.8 billion) American patients depend on the funding for biomedical research to help improve health, cure diseases, and deliver quality care.

Urge your member of Congress that decreasing federal dollars by this magnitude will threaten the lives and livelihood of millions of Americans.
