Honor the Legacy of a Nurse

Whether we’re responding to the extraordinary life someone has lived or to our grief when they die, it’s common to share stories about inspirational people by contributing to the causes they love. The Illinois Nurses Foundation has two distinct programs meant to honor the legacy of a nurse.

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.
