Canadian Nurses Foundation
The Canadian Nurses Foundation supports world-class Canadian health care by raising funds to advance nursing knowledge and research, and by recognizing professional merit in Canada’s nurses. For over 50 years, we have helped nurses learn, investigate and advance nursing best practices. We improve the delivery of health care in Canada by investing in nursing excellence that drives better patient care.
As Canada’s only charity that raises funds exclusively for nurses, CNF provides deserving nursing students and nurses with the financial support they need to pursue their educational goals. Our grants and scholarships range in dollar value and are awarded to new nursing students as they enter the profession and assist nursing leaders to pursue their education at the Masters and PhD levels.
Our funding of nurse-led research supports an evolving base of nursing science. Nurse-led research that focuses on preventing the progression of disease, improving the patient experience, and helping people manage better in their home communities is critical for safe and quality health care.
Through our scholarship and research awards, we strive for excellence that advances nursing knowledge in support of world-class Canadian health care and helps cultivate the next generation of nurses to excel as clinicians, researchers, educators and scholars. To learn more visit www.cnf-fiic.ca.
