2020 Annual Report
Celebration of Nursing – Year in Review
The Illinois Nurses Foundation is proud to release the 2020 Annual Report. It provides a snapshot of recent events and accomplishments, including details regarding programs, awards, and grants funded by the Foundation.
The past year has been filled with unexpected challenges resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. We are proud of the heroic work done by the nurses of Illinois during the pandemic and hope you will join us in honoring “all Illinois Nurses” as Nurses of the Year.

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.
