It’s National Nurses Week! Cosponsor H.R. 5251, the NURSE Act

In honor of National Nurses Week, I invite you to become a cosponsor of H.R. 5251, the
Nurses for Under-Resourced Schools Everywhere Act, or NURSE Act. This bill would provide federal grants to school districts, boards, and state educational agencies to reduce the cost of hiring a nurse in public elementary
and secondary schools. Eligible entities could apply for the grants if at least 20 percent of students within their jurisdictions are eligible for low-cost or free school lunch under the National School Lunch Program. A
state-by-state breakdown of participation in the National School Lunch Program from the Food and Nutrition Service within the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) shows
that thousands of students could benefit from the grants afforded by this bill.
