Resources for Deans

Welcome to this web resource designed specifically for Deans at AACN member institutions. 

COVID-19 Nursing Student Support Fund

The COVID-19 Nursing Student Support Fund provides one-time grants to nursing students enrolled in AACN member schools who need financial support to complete their nursing programs and/or meet life expenses. 

With more than 2,800 applications received, nursing students from all 50 states and the District of Columbia were chosen for support following a competitive application process.  The Foundation for Academic Nursing is seeking additional support from other corporate and individual donors for this fund to expand our ability to help more nursing students in need.
