There is an urgency to supporting our nurses and their families. Prior to COVID-19, we had a shortage of trained nurses in the U.S. If nothing changes by 2022, we will have about 1 million fewer nurses than we need.
Motivated philanthropists, leading media organizations and celebrities from around the world are joining forces to honor our Nurse Heroes through an exciting international art contest and series of digitally broadcast concerts. Join us for an all-star concert on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 26, 2020!
The initiative will provide funds for scholarships for continuing education of nurses; scholarships for the children of nurses; the endowment of research fellowships for the advancement of nursing innovation; and the touring and exhibition of Nurse Heroes art and the 'Women Who Dared' collection to select institutions and hospitals across the U.S., honoring Florence Nightingale and our modern day Nurse Heroes and their families.
