Vanderbilt Alters Nursing Residency Application

January 13, 2011

Vanderbilt University on Wednesday announced that it has modified its nursing residency application forms to make clear that those accepted into the program will not be required to assist in abortions, The Tennessean reported. The Alliance Defense Fund complained about the application this week, saying that such a requirement would violate federal law. While Vanderbilt said originally that its application had been misunderstood, it has now agreed to change the language to clarify that there is no requirement to participate in abortions.
