WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA), today announced that several Iowa universities will receive a total $192,189 for the creation and continuation of advanced nursing traineeship programs.  The funding comes from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).

“Iowa’s colleges and universities have some of the strongest health training programs and best health professionals in the country, and by making further investments in educating Iowa’s healthcare workforce we will keep our state a leader for generations to come,” said Harkin.  “Today’s funding will not only open doors for Iowans who want to become nurses, but will ensure that when Iowans get sick or seek medical assistance, they will have highly trained health care providers to treat them.  This is truly a double-win for our state.”

Senator Harkin is Chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee that funds HHS. He is also Chairman of the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee.
