Do you know a nurse who deserves special recognition? The American Nurses Foundation (ANF) has a special way to honor them.

For 60 years, the ANF has been helping nurses improve the lives of patients and their families - locally, nationally, and internationally. The ANF complements the work of the American Nurses Association (ANA), the largest nursing organization in America, by raising funds and developing and managing grants to support advances in research, education, and clinical practice. The mission of the ANF is to transform the health of the nation through the power of nursing. ANF programs benefit nurses and consumers wherever nurses practice.

Its annual Honor a Nurse campaign, sponsored by Lippincott Solutions, was created to make sure nurses know they are respected and valued. You can recognize a nurse colleague or colleagues for the heroic work they do, every day, for patients and their families.

Is your honoree worthy of Nurse of the Year? Make a donation, and then celebrate that special nurse, clinician, friend, colleague, mentor, and/or educator who has touched your life or has made a difference in the lives of others and the practice of nursing. Share the story of what makes your honoree a great nurse, and he or she will be entered into a pool for Nurse of the Year.

For a $25 donation, the nurse being honored will receive a listing on the ANF website, a limited-edition note card with personal message from you, nomination for Nurse of the Year, and automatic entry in a quarterly recognition drawing to receive an engraved plaque of honor. For a $50 donation, your nurse honoree will receive all of this plus an official certificate of honor. For a $100 donation, the nurse will be honored with all of the above plus an official letter of recognition to the honoree's employer. For a donation of $250 or more, the nurse honoree will receive this entire package in addition to a commemorative frame for the certificate of honor.
