The American Nurses Foundation was founded in 1955 as the research, education, and charitable affiliate of ANA. Since then, it has fought tirelessly to advance the nursing profession through raising funds for advances in research, education, and clinical practice to the benefit of the whole health care system. As the philanthropic arm of the American Nurses Association (ANA), our vision is to achieve 'a healthy world through the power of nursing', and this is more relevant today than ever. With the future of health care changing so dramatically, nurses can revolutionize the approach to care for the better. With gifts and grants from generous donors, the Foundation invests in the wellbeing and success of individual nurses while championing the nursing cause throughout the health care system.
