From the President
NFP presents an opportunity for you to give back to our respected profession. Most of us have experienced nursing care or will experience nursing care for ourselves or our loved ones. NFP scholarships enable recipients to focus on their learning so that they gain the most value from their rigorous education. This a time for those who have benefited from highly qualified nurses to step up and invest in the profession. A highly educated nursing workforce fosters high standards of professional nursing practice.
NFP’s goal is to advance the educational and professional standards of nursing and the nursing profession through:
- Grants and scholarships for study, instruction, research and scholarly pursuits in nursing
- Financial support of PSNA’s efforts to provide continuing education for PA’s RNs

To ensure nurses for tomorrow
To be the premier charitable organization for professional nurses in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
Nurses are pillars in our communities, viewed as the most trusted profession in our nation. Having an adequate number of nurses improves quality of life and patient care. We believe that qualified nursing students should have the financial and career resources to successfully complete their education. We look to experienced nurses to generate new knowledge through research. Those entrusted to nursing care have the right to expect qualified, caring RNs who uphold a strong code of ethics and responsibility.
