NOVA CALLS ON CONGRESS TO SAFEGUARD AND STRENGTHEN VA SERVICES

  

WASHINGTON D.C.  February 5, 2020 - As nurses on the frontlines, taking care of our Nation’s heroes, the Nurses Organization of Veterans Affairs (NOVA), calls on Congress and the Administration to safeguard and strengthen VA services.

NOVA’s  2020 Legislative Priority Goals, released today, focuses on ensuring an adequate budget, monitoring access and the Community Care Network and most importantly, Staffing, Recruitment and Retention, with emphasis on lowering vacancies by recruiting and retaining a highly qualified workforce.

NOVA President, Kelly Skinner, DNP, APRN, NP-C, GNP-BC, CRRN, WCC, CFCN, asks every Member of Congress to consider “What VA provides its population, and to ensure it receives funding so it can continue to care for the millions of Veterans it serves. We ask that VA be given every opportunity to continue offering their unique services.”

NOVA believes no other health care system offers the “Whole Health” approach in a setting designed to understand those who have served and sacrificed in a modern military.
