Since 1962, CNF has invested more than $10 million in scholarships and $9 million in research funding to over 2,000 nurses, nurse researchers and nursing students to advance nursing practice, knowledge and care in Canada.
In 2023, Canadian Nurses Foundation (CNF) launched our Healing Healthcare initiative which focuses on the support and advancement of four important areas of nursing including Post-Secondary Education & Certification (financial support), Healthy Nurses’ initiatives (mental health programs), funding of Nurse-led Research as well as Career Support & Mentorship programs. We are excited to continue with our impact of the past while launching our Healing Healthcare initiative which expands our impact and focuses on the support and advancement of four important areas of nursing that strengthen and improve the health of Canadians. These include:
Within each pillar of Healing Healthcare, funding will be provided to address equity, diversity and inclusion. Our focus will include finding investment opportunities to build funding for individuals from all underrepresented communities in Canada including all Indigenous populations and communities.
Through the generosity of our donors, CNF is proud to support Nursing The Future (NTF). The program is creating solutions to help keep newly graduated nurses engaged and supported through the first 24 months of transition into their nursing careers and that is important for all Canadians.
