May & June 2020
The human toll of the Coronavirus-19 pandemic is being felt throughout the nation and most acutely by the nation’s largest body of health care professionals – nurses. These nurses will deliver the vast majority of patient care as COVID-19 spreads across the country.
The Fund has four focus areas, which are based on information we received from tens of thousands of responses to the ANA COVID-19 survey, our town halls, and outreach from nurses to the ANA as well as state nursing associations. In addition to addressing the needs of nurses, the Fund is an opportunity for the public to support and show gratitude through a text-to-give campaign, individual giving and corporate donations.
- Provide direct financial assistance to nurses
- Support the mental health of nurses – today and in the future
- Ensure nurses everywhere have access to the latest science-based information to protect themselves, prevent infection, and care for those in need
- Drive the national advocacy focused on nurses and patients
To share your thanks and support for nurses on the frontlines you can make a donation to the American Nurses Foundation Coronavirus Response Fund for Nurses.
