Since 1981 we have awarded more than $1 million in nursing student scholarships.


Founded in 1981 the Friends of Nursing, a nonprofit 501c(3) organization, is dedicated to advancing professional nursing through scholarship support of baccalaureate and higher degree nursing students. FON has no paid staff and accomplishes its work entirely though the efforts of its members, donors and other supportive volunteers. Funds for the scholarship awards each year are raised through membership dues, various ticketed events, the generosity of members and donors, and investments.

In 2014, Friends of Nursing awarded $72,508 to 28 students from 9 Colorado nursing programs.

Your donation would help us provide scholarships to more students. Please join us and help support nursing students throughout the state of Colorado.
