Canadian Nurses Foundation

The New Brunswick Nurses Foundation (NBNF) was established in 1988 by the NANB to raise funds to support nursing education. In 1996, these funds were transferred to the Canadian Nurses Foundation (CNF) and, in keeping with the wishes of the NBNF, an award was created for New Brunswick nurses who are pursuing studies at the master’s level and who demonstrate their ability to become future valuable contributors to the nursing profession in Canada. In 2008, to celebrate the Centennial of the Canadian Nurses Association, NANB established a second scholarship to be awarded to an NANB member pursuing Masters education and residing in New Brunswick.

NANB celebrated 100 years of nursing regulation in 2016. To commemorate this celebration a third scholarship was established to support PhD studies for NANB members. This award, the NANB Centennial PhD Scholarship was matched by the Government of New Brunswick with the establishment of a second PhD scholarship, the New Brunswick PhD Nursing Scholarship. There are now four awards available to NANB members from the CNF.
