Our vision is to achieve a healthy Commonwealth 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. The Foundation pursues this vision through the following:

  • Elevating the Profession of Nursing in the Commonwealth;
  • Engaging All Nurses to Ensure Professional Success;
  • Evolving the Practice of Nursing to Transform Health and Health Care,
  • With gifts and grants from generous donors, the Foundation invests in the well being and success of individual nurses while championing the nursing cause throughout the health care system.

History

The Foundation for Nursing Advancement in Massachusetts was founded in 2020 as the research, education, and charitable affiliate of ANA Massachusetts. Since inception, the foundation has sought 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.

 

The foundation relies on the generosity of its donors to achieve and expand on its mission and vision.  Individuals, corporations, government agencies, and private foundations make it possible for us to undertake potentially life-changing research, support nurses and improve health care in the Commonwealth.
