Why Your Support Is Essential

Your donations to the Foundation help to advance our work to establish quality standards for nursing education; assist schools in implementing those standards; influence the nursing profession to improve health care; and support professional nursing education, research, and practice. The Foundation’s priority areas align with the AACN Strategic Plan Goals and Objectives. In its short lifespan, the Foundation has established a track record of success by providing over $200,000 in scholarships to over 200 students, $1.8 million in grant funding to over 30 schools of nursing, and $200,000 in research funding to 8 Faculty Scholar grantees. With your support, we look forward to expanding the impact the Foundation can have on helping academic nursing to improve health and health care.
