Show your gratitude

The Foundation has existed for over 60 years because some things are timeless – like a nurse’s dedication. If you’ve experienced the power of nursing, you know the combination of natural intuition and expert knowledge that exceptional nurses show, and the difference that they make.  But how do you say thank you? Honor a Nurse with the Foundation to recognize the commitment that nurses make, or honor an individual nurse who has made an impression on you.

Help nurses help people

Together, we can do even more. From advocating for greater leadership roles for nurses, to funding new innovative care solutions, the Foundation is passionate about supporting programs that make a difference. We believe that nurses have a critical view of the challenges we face in modern health care, and that nursing should be supported to lead health care change.  This will keep patients safe and ensure they experience the best possible care and are encouraged to lead healthier lives.
