DHS Supports HB 58 to Bring More Nurses to Delaware

DHA sent a letter of support to Rep. Bryan Shupe, the sponsor of HB 58, a bill to increase the numbers of Delaware nursing students eligible for the nursing incentive program by allowing Delawareans pursuing nursing careers at non-profit hospitals located in Delaware to be eligible for the program. With a national nursing shortage and an increasingly aging population in Delaware, the demand for nurses will continue to increase. This bill will increase the pipeline of nurses coming to Delaware and address the growing nursing shortage.
