Nursing Training Act of 1975. Fact Sheets.
Health Resources Administration (DHEW/PHS), Bethesda, MD. Div. of Nursing.
The Nursing training Act of 1975 revises and extends the nursing training authorities provided under Title VIII of the Public Health Service Act for a three-year period, thus providing aid to nursing training through September 30, 1978. It provides two new, separate authorities for the support of Advanced Nursing Training and Nursing Practitioner programs. Institutional aid is continued through Construction Assistance, Capitation Grants, and Financial Distress authorities. Start-Up Grants for nursing training programs and grants and contracts for Full Utilization of Educational Talent for Nursing are repealed. Support for the latter purpose is continued, but it is now consolidated with the other purposes under Special Project Assistance. Continuation of student support is again authorized through the Nursing Student Loan and Scholarship programs and the Professional Nursing Traineeship program. Programs under this legislation are administered by the Division of Nursing, except for the Student Loans and Scholarships which are administered by the Office of Student Assistance, Bureau of Health Manpower. This document reviews the highlights of these new and amended provisions. (Author/KE)
