Nursing programs in Florida, Arizona, Kentucky and Tennessee have been boosted under the Affordable Care Act to encourage the enrollment of nurses, a boon for state economies.
The new rules, which were enacted as part of a law passed last month, have also been welcomed by health care workers.
The move will help the states attract more skilled nurses to their workforces, as they do for their doctors.
The Affordable Care, or ACA, law requires all states to offer paid leave to employees in order to cover costs related to care.
The ACA requires that a state set a minimum amount of paid time off for employees and provides a mechanism to compensate for employees who are unable to take it.
The law is aimed at helping low-income workers who are struggling with the costs of care.
In addition to offering paid leave, the law requires states to have nurse-led programs.
This is where the nurses come in.
Under the ACA, states are required to establish nurse-based nursing programs.
Nursing programs are typically in the care of nursing home residents or are for students who are attending college.
According to a 2016 study by the American Academy of Family Physicians, nurses accounted for more than 80 percent of all nursing staff in states with a federally-funded state-funded program.
This means the nurses provide crucial support to those who need it most.
In 2016, the American College of Nursing reported that the number of nurse-directed programs nationally increased from 6.5 million in 2016 to 9.1 million in 2017.
In 2018, the association noted that more than 9.3 million nursing staff were participating in nurse-managed programs.
This year, the federal government released a study looking at the impact of the ACA on the nursing workforce, finding that nursing staffs are now more highly educated, more experienced and are more likely to stay in the profession.
The study also found that nursing is a key career for female nurses, with women holding more than 40 percent of positions in nursing homes.
The ACA also created the Nurse Rental Assistance Program, or NRA, which provides up to $15,000 to nursing home workers who need to rent rooms or apartments.
This program helps ensure that nursing home facilities are fully staffed, and is paid for by the state.
The NRA is administered by the Department of Health and Human Services, and states must use the money for nursing home rent.
Nurse-led nursing programs are a crucial component to keeping the workforce healthy and the workforce employed.
This year, more than 1.6 million Americans received free or reduced-cost healthcare through these programs.
That’s about one-quarter of all Americans, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.
States are also now required to use these funds to support nurse-run programs that offer paid time-off, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and home health care programs.
The nurse-backed programs that were introduced in Florida and Arizona, are part of the Medicaid expansion.
This expansion, also known as Obamacare, provides $7 billion to states over the next decade, which will allow them to expand Medicaid coverage to the working poor.
This will help states reduce the cost of healthcare, which is currently at a record high.
According to the National Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services, the states that expanded Medicaid under the ACA are expected to spend an additional $1.2 trillion over the decade to expand coverage.
In Florida alone, the state will spend $8.5 billion, and Arizona will spend more than $3.2 billion.
The state of Ohio will spend about $1 billion.
This additional spending will be a major boost for the states.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services estimates that the Medicaid expansions in the future will add $5.9 trillion to the federal budget.
