Purpose

The Colorado Nurses Foundation is dedicated to improving health care and nursing practice in Colorado. The foundation began Oct. 3, 1987, as the Nursing Institute of Colorado. Although the name has changed, the mission of the organization has remained essentially the same: to advance nursing in Colorado through education, advocacy, and recognition.

The Colorado Nurses Foundation vision is that nursing is recognized for its leadership role in creating a sustainable health care system for Colorado. The foundation is devoted to creating nursing excellence through the promotion of educational and scientific activities and community based projects. Contributions, fundraising, activities and grants are used to support CNF activities.

The foundation became the sponsor for the prestigious Nightingale Event in 1999, and has raised more than $329,000 for nursing scholarships. Nursing students throughout the State of Colorado are encouraged to apply for scholarships, which are awarded each January.
