Nevada Nurses Foundation

Developing Quality Health Care for Nevada Citizens by Promoting The Development of Professional Nursing


What You Can Do


It is a great pleasure to award scholarships to such deserving candidates! Due to the limited funds, in 2015 we were unable to award scholarships to 32 other deserving applicants. The NNF would like to award scholarships to ALL qualified applicants. There are many ways you can help the Foundation accomplish this goal.

The NNF and the Nevada Action Coalition (NAC), as well as the Nevada Association for Nursing Excellence (NANE), Nevada Nurses Association (NNA), Nevada Organization of Nurse Leaders (NONL), and other organizations recently held a spectacular fundraising event called The Future of Nursing in Nevada Awards Dinner. This event highlighted the Professional Progression Awards and the "40 Under 40" Awards. Thank you to Drs. Elizabeth Fildes and Denise Ogletree McGuinn for co-chairing the committee. We plan to post pictures from that event shortly.
