Unprecedented Times

Nursing care and nursing leadership has rarely been so tested as it is now. We are inspired by the continuing dedicated and dangerous work of all health care professionals on the frontlines. Two members of the NEF Board of Directors and our NEF Scholar Liaison Board Member are working in leadership capacities in three of the major healthcare institutions in the New York Metropolitan area dealing with the day-to-day challenges.

The virtual office of NEF is open and this year's NEF Scholars biographies and photos are posted under 2021-2022 Scholars. Please view the accomplishments and academic goals of these exceptional nurses.

The core of NEF’s mission is to promote nursing leadership by awarding scholarships to support nurses studying in doctoral and master’s nursing programs throughout the United States. NEF intends to honor that mission now as we have for the past 109 years.
