The NLN Foundation is looking forward to seeing you in San Diego. 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 its tomorrow.  Contribute to 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, augmented by a matching grant from the Independence Foundation, we are building an the 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.

Help us raise $125,000 by December 31, 2017. Watch progress in real time on our 2017 Fundraising Thermometer Live Feed
