We invite you to cosponsor, H.R. 662, the Making Educating Nurses Dependable for Schools (MEND) Act in order to protect hospital based-nursing programs across the United States as they face conflicting regulatory requirements from Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid Services (CMS) and their accreditation bodies. As America’s health care needs evolve, these programs provide our nurses with the quality education necessary to serve their communities by providing the world-class care that Americans expect and deserve.
This is identical legislation to the MEND Act introduced in the 114th Congress.
