This is the definitive non-profit charitable Foundation for registered nurses in the united states. Their programs are informed by front-line nurses, and the cause is important since nurses represent over 20% of all healthcare workers but are disproportionately represented in the non-profit space.
The American Nurses Foundation invests in the wellbeing and success of individual nurses and the healthcare system through the eyes and work of nurses. The Foundation quickly pivoted to address and support nurses on the frontlines when COVID-19 hit, supporting mental health and wellness webinars and resources, help for nurses experiencing financial hardship during this pandemic and ongoing nursing research for both COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 concerns. Having a foundation focused on nurses and the needs of nursing is so important as our healthcare system thrives only when nurses and the nursing profession is succeeding.
ANF is a wonderful foundation with incredible passion for their mission.
Very thorough and professional organization. Leaders in fundraising for nurses and the education and professional development of nurses.
ANA is an incredible organization that consistently delivers on their mission. They have continued to provide an unprecedented level of support to nurses who have been impacted by the pandemic. They recently launched an exciting new initiative, seeking to fund bold proposals to transform nursing education, technology and direct reimbursement care models. I am grateful for their work, especially during this time!
I am a nurse. I am a nurse who is proud and standing tall, not because of what I have done. Rather, because of the nurses who have worked before me, who stand beside me now and give of their best day in and day out.
Yet, there are times when giving and doing our best is simply not enough. There is no blaming, no faulting, no minimizing here. Especially since the advent of COVID, that is what I believe many nurses are feeling and experiencing in the depths of our bodies and of our spirits.
The American Nurses Foundation Inc (ANF), is a not-for profit foundation of nurses working behind the scenes in real and tangible ways for nurses.
I encourage every nurse that I know to become a member of the American Nurses Association. One of the privileges of that membership is that I automatically become a member of ANF. Through my financial donations, I tangibly support my many peers who have stood in my stead throughout COVID and other difficult and trying times.
Keep up the great work American Nurses, ANA and ANF.
Very helpful, and very educational to help the nursing profession and the general public.
The American Nurses Foundation is the foundation devoted to advancing the profession of nursing as a part of improving the health and lives of all Americans. Throughout the challenges of the last 2 years I have personally seen the impact of the philanthropy of the foundation especially as it affects the mental health of nurses during a time of great emotional and mental struggle for nurses on the front lines of crisis care. No foundation has done more to help nurses make a difference. For me personally, the foundation's work has enlightened me to just how central nurses are to the health of the nation and the impact they have. A dollar donated to the American Nurses Foundation ultimately improves the health of every American. How could I not continue to support that work!
Wonderful organization that is doing such important work during these unprecedented times.
