Proud to Be a Nebraska Nurse Pin

The Nebraska Nurses Foundation seeks to build camaraderie and pride among nurses in our state, which is why we are offering “Proud to Be a Nebraska Nurse” pins to all interested nurses for a donation of $15 (includes shipping and handling to send the pin directly to your door). The gold-toned metal pin, shaped in the image of the State of Nebraska will stand out on your lapel, jacket, lanyard, or hat.

Practice/Clinical Grant Program

The Nebraska Nurses Foundation is excited to launch a practice/clinical grant program for NNA members, designed to provide funding for evidence-based practice, quality improvement or innovation projects conducted within clinical nursing settings.

Florence Nightingale Tribute

The Nightingale Tribute is intended to be presented by a nursing colleague or friend and scheduled as part of the funeral service in collaboration with the family, funeral home and place of worship as appropriate. The entire tribute takes only two minutes and can be placed anywhere in the service appropriate to the traditions and beliefs of the recipient’s faith.

Praise a Nurse

Professional nurses touch the lives of millions every day. By combining compassionate care with clinical reasoning and scientific expertise, nurses make a difference every day – at home and at work. Nurses coordinate the complex business of healthcare in a variety of settings and specialties. Join us to Celebrate Nursing by Praising a Nurse (or nurses)! Make a donation to the NNF to celebrate a nurse and we will send a personal message to them sharing your pride in them.

Help us support nurse-led initiatives to improve and promote the health of Nebraskans.

NNF is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.
