American Nurses Foundation relaunches “Honor a Nurse” program


The American Nurses Foundation, a national charity focused on transforming the nation’s health through the power of nursing, recently relaunched “Honor a Nurse,” a program designed to ensure nurses know they are respected and valued by patients, families and the community, according to a news release.

“We’re excited to launch this revitalized, tiered giving program for people everywhere to honor nurses in their lives,” ANF Chairwoman Joyce Fitzpatrick, RN, PhD, MBA, FAAN, FNAP, said in the release.

Founded in 1993, ANF created “Honor a Nurse” to acknowledge nurses who have made a difference in the lives of others. Through a partnership with Wolters Kluwer Health, ANF hopes to raise the visibility of “Honor a Nurse” and the public’s recognition of the invaluable contributions nurses make to improve patient care and the nation’s healthcare system. With the new giving levels, donors can contribute in ways that provide personalized recognition to their honoree and their honorees’ employer.

Anyone can honor a nurse — whether a patient, clinician, friend, colleague, mentor or teacher — who has made a difference in the practice of nursing. The program accepts donations that can be given on behalf of the honoree. Each honoree then is recognized through the giving levels and featured on the Honor a Nurse website.
