NLN Foundation for Nursing Education

The NLN has been promoting excellence in nursing education for more than 125 years 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 preserve nursing’s yesterday and contribute to its tomorrow. Your support makes a difference. Today, you can 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

The NLN Foundation is deeply thankful to all benefactors for their continued support. This year, the Foundation has a new goal of $301,000 by December 31, 2020. All donations will help us successfully support our programs. Check out the many ways to give and help us advance the health of our nation through the power nursing education.
