Center for Nursing Foundation
The Center for Nursing (CFN) Foundation was created in 2010 to support the work of the Nebraska Center for Nursing. Established as a 501c3 for charitable giving, the CFN Foundation focuses on four goals - recruitment, retention, sustainability and enrollment – of nurses in Nebraska. The vision of the CFN Foundation is that there will be sufficient supply of nurses to meet the health care needs of consumers in the state of Nebraska.
The CFN Foundation embraces the goals of the Center for Nursing, established by the Nebraska Legislature in 2000, which are:
- To develop a strategic statewide plan to alleviate the nursing shortage in Nebraska by:
- Establishing and maintaining a data base on nursing supply and demand in Nebraska, including current supply and demand and future projections; and
- Selecting priorities from the plan to be addressed;
- To convene various groups representative of nurses, other health care providers, business and industry, consumers, legislators, and educators to:
- Review and comment on data analysis prepared for the center;
- Recommend systemic changes, including strategies for implementation of recommended changes; and
- Evaluate and report the results of these efforts to the Legislature and the public; and
- To enhance and promote recognition, reward, and renewal activities for nurses by:
- Proposing and creating recognition, reward, and renewal activities; and
- Promoting media and positive image-building efforts for nursing.
The CFN Foundation is positioned to receive grants and private donations to support the work of the Center for Nursing. Please join us by contributing our efforts and donate now!
