Black & Gold Gala Online Celebration

On November 3, the Nursing Foundation of Pennsylvania (NFP) held its first annual Black & Gold Gala in Harrisburg.

The NFP is a supporting organization of PSNA, a non-profit, statewide scholarship program inspiring and supporting current and future nursing students. The organization is approved by PANO’s Standards for Excellence program, which encourages excellence and integrity in non-profit management. Through NFP and its donors, students can begin their journey to care for each of us in the community.

Help us support nurses, students, and patients through an individual gift or a donation to honor a loved one.


The Gala celebration continues online through December 31 as we work to ensure nurses for tomorrow.
