The Voice of Nursing Education


NLN Foundation for Nursing Education

The NLN has been promoting excellence in nursing education for more than a century through faculty development programs, networking opportunities, testing and assessment, nursing research grants, and public policy initiatives. The generosity and vision of old and new supporters, friends, and partners, continues to help the NLN fulfill its mission to advance the health of the nation and the global community.

We empower nurse educators. We address the nurse faculty and nursing shortages. We preserve nursing’s yesterday and contribute to its tomorrow. Your support makes a difference. Join the #NLNGivingTuesday movement and help the NLN Foundation: 

- Preserve the history of nursing education through the NLN Archives project. Supported by a matching grant from the Independence Foundation, these funds are allowing us build an NLN archive at the Barbara Bates Center for the Study of the History of Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania. 

- Build the future of nursing education through established programs such as faculty scholarships and the scholarly writing retreat. For example, the NLN Foundation awarded six scholarships in 2017 and created two new scholarship funds for 2018. 

The NLN Foundation's goal is to raise $125,000 by December 31, 2017; we are only $25,000 away. All donations will help us successfully support our programs in 2018. Make a gift today and join our end-of-year giving efforts, to advance the health of our nation through the power nursing education.
