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!

INF Grants

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.
