The NLN Foundation looks forward to seeing you in Washington, DC. We proudly help the National League for Nursing meet its mission to promote excellence in nursing education to build a strong and diverse nursing workforce to advance the health of our nation and the global community.

With your support, we empower nurse educators, address the nurse faculty and nursing shortages, and protect both nursing’s yesterday and tomorrow. Support our campaign, Preserving Our Past, Building Our Future, and help the NLN Foundation:

  • Sustain the history of nursing education through the NLN Archives Project. With your support, boosted by a matching grant from the Independence Foundation, we are building an NLN Archives at the Barbara Bates Center for the Study of the History of Nursing at the University of Pennsylvania.
  • Expand our vital scholarship and research grants programs, and the popular mentoring initiative, the NLN Scholarly Writing Retreat, to build the future.

Help us raise $270,000 by December 31. Watch progress in real time on our donation page.
