INF Annual Report
Celebration of Nursing – Year in Review
We’re excited to share the release of our 2021 Annual Report!
We welcome you to celebrate with us another successful year. We truly appreciate our donors and sponsors who helped us move our mission forward.
Alma J Labunski Tribute
On July 2, 2022, the Illinois Nurses Foundation lost a dear friend, colleague, and founding board member, Dr. Alma Joel Labunski PhD, MS, RN. We have established an Alma J Labunski Tribute campaign to honor her work. Alma spent a lifetime devoted to nursing, nursing education, and service to others. For twenty-three years she served in leadership roles on the Foundation board, served on various committees, and as the editor and then editor emeritus for The Nursing Voice. We were honored to have served with her and were humbled by her support. The board of directors wishes to pay tribute to her and her effort on behalf of nursing. We are asking for donations of $1.00 for each year of her 23 years of service with the foundation. Let’s all commemorate her service with a $23 donation today!
2022 40 under 40 Announced
The Illinois Nurses Foundation is proud to announce the 2022 40 under 40 Emerging Nurse Leaders Award winners. This award was established in 2015 by the Illinois Nurses Foundation to highlight and celebrate young nurse leaders. It celebrates those who are impacting health care and the nursing profession today and who will undoubtedly shape the future of the profession in Illinois!
A Small Group of Nurses Can Accomplish Great Things
The INF provided grants that funded successful Public Health Nurse Academic-Practice Partnerships. Students from BSN, RN-BSN and MSN programs implemented projects serving local health department employees, community providers, parents, caregivers, and high-school students. Topics included employee wellness, sexually transmitted infection prevention, immunization adherence, and asthma.
