The federal government is proposing to phase out nursing coverage for most workers over the next decade.
The nursing cover letters sent out by nursing boards and hospitals tell workers what their pay is expected to be over the course of the decade.
For example, nursing home administrators will receive a letter from the nursing board telling them how much they are paid over the following five years.
The nursing board then has five years to figure out what it will do about their salary.
The average nursing home administrator earns $72,500.
The government also is proposing that hospitals should be able to pay their workers more over time to give them a better chance of staying employed, especially when there are less workers available to work the shifts.
The Nursing Cover Letter program was established in 2008 to make it easier for nursing homes and other health care providers to keep their workers and families safe.
It provides incentives for employers to offer nursing care in the hospital setting.
Nursing cover letters also help hospitals identify potential employees and train them in nursing care.
They tell employees about their responsibilities as nurses, how to keep track of their paychecks, and how to find a job in nursing.
For every nurse that gets a nursing cover Letter, hospitals are also required to provide a new nurse a copy of their nursing license.
The proposed changes come as the health care system faces a massive surge in patients who need emergency care in nursing homes.
In April, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services reported that more than 10 million people needed emergency care at nursing homes in the past year.
About 2 million people received a nursing home nursing care visit in the last year, according to a May report from the Center for American Progress.
The number of people hospitalized with pneumonia, influenza, and other respiratory conditions has been climbing.
The number of nursing home visits has increased at the same time the number of emergency room visits has fallen.
In the first quarter of 2019, there were 6.9 million nursing home residents and about 10.6 million emergency room residents.
About 5 million people visit nursing homes annually, according the Center.
That is more than double the amount of people who visit hospitals.
