The Nurse Reinvestment Act has ushered in a new wave of federal involvement intended to address the issue of the critical nursing shortage. To implement this act, administrators will rely on a series of governance tools often called upon to address issues related to the social welfare of the country. Included among these tools are grants and loans through which the intent of the legislation will be formalized. The purpose of this analysis is to provide an overview of the characteristics associated with these tools, specifically as they relate to nursing education. Consideration will be given to the political environment through which funding, and thus the ability to implement the Nurse Reinvestment Act, will be realized, and the potential obstacles when executing federal programs in a market-driven economy.
