Senate Bill 2825 introduced by Senator Vitale was passed out of the Senate Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee on June 23rd. It is a comprehensive package to address nurses and nursing workforce issues ultimately to support the care of NJ residents. We hope other legislators will support this bill.
This bill establishes certain requirements and initiatives related to nurses; transfers oversight of certified nurse aids from the Department of Health to the Board of Nursing and appropriates $26.7 million for Nurse Residency Program, Nursing School Expansion Grant Program, Nurse Emotional Well-Being & Mental Health Support, Preceptor Tax Credits and funding for the New Jersey Collaborating Center for Nursing (NJCCN). It also establishes mandatory Workforce and Training Program Surveys. It requires each hospital in the State to establish a Nursing Workplace Environment and Staffing Council (NWESC).
The following provided testimony in support of the bill. They include:
· Edna Cadmus, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN, Executive Director, NJCCN and Clinical Professor, Rutgers School of Nursing. Click HERE

· Susan Salmond, EdD, RN, ANEF, FAAN, Professor & Executive Vice Dean, Rutgers School of Nursing and Director, NJ-NEW
