The Registered Nurses' Foundation of Ontario enhances and advances nursing practice, and contributes to the health of individuals by raising funds and stewarding sound investments to provide awards and scholarships to Ontario nurses and nursing students in all programs including RN, RPN and RN-EC, and at every level, including Masters and Doctorate.
RNFOO has been pleased to receive donations given in honor of individuals who have had significant connection to the nursing profession. A Tribute donation to RNFOO is a wonderful way to honour a nurse, or express appreciation for nursing care received. Healthier than a box of chocolates, and longer lasting than a seasonal table arrangement, a donation to RNFOO will make your favourite nurse feel valued and appreciated, while also encouraging nursing students as they pursue their goal of joining the profession and carrying on the tradition of compassionate, professional nursing care.
Supporting nurses to begin their studies or continue to learn and grow as clinicians and leaders is essential to enhancing nursing practice and improving the health of Ontarians. RNFOO bursaries help to relieve financial pressure which can often be a barrier to pursuing continuing education. It is vitally important for all nurses - RPNs, RNs, and NPs - to stay on the forefront of creative solutions to the complexities of both patient care and health systems challenges.
