We Are The Future of Nursing! Congrats 2022-2023 Scholars
The vision of the Foundation is to have a thriving, diverse nursing workforce leading healthcare to improve quality of life for all. For over fifty years, this has been the driving force of the Foundation.
The FNSNA was created in 1969 to honor Frances Tompkins, the Association’s first Executive Director. Organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, the Foundation awards scholarships and other programs for student nurses. Since 1974, the FNSNA has awarded over $20 million dollars in scholarships to undergraduate student nurses, graduate faculty fellowships and school grants. Contributions to the FNSNA are tax-deductible. The Foundation is organized as a 501 (C) (3) charitable foundation.
