Hill just put out a press release announcing the endorsement of the American Nurses Association (ANA). The ANA represents 2.9 million registered nurses.
"I am honored to have the support of the American Nurses Association," said Clinton. "We owe nurses a great debt of gratitude for the critical role they play every day in providing quality care. As President, I will continue to support efforts to attract and retain qualified nurses, especially in rural and urban areas, and to improve working conditions. I look forward to working with America's nurses to deliver affordable, quality health care to every American."
Hill has a long history in working for America's nurses. In the Senate, Hill introduced the Nursing Education and Quality of Care Act, to expand the number of programs addressing nursing faculty shortages and increasing the number of nurses in rural areas. She also helped to create grants as a part of the Nurse Reinvestment Act.
