The report on the Nurse Training Act of 1975 focuses on the legislation to provide funds for nursing education through an amendment of title VIII of the Public Health Service Act. It proposes to continue, without change, for fiscal year 1975 the nurse training authorities of title VIII of the Act and to continue the authorities for fiscal years 1976-78 with modifications designed to meet the current needs in nursing. Support to schools include grants and interest subsidy payment for construction of nursing education facilities, institutional support in the form of capitation grants, financial distress grants, nursing student loans and scholarships, special project grants, professional nurse traineeships, contracts for improvement in nurse training, advanced nurse training programs, and nurse practitioner programs. A copy of a communication from President Ford which disapproves with the amendment due to economic needs of other priorities is included. A 46-page section focuses on a detailed analysis of the Act. Additional and minority views related to the passage of the bill are included. (Author/EC)
