CNF Launches Covid-19 Fund in Support of Nurses Across Canada

This pandemic has brought unprecedented challenges to all of us. Nurses and health care providers across the country are at the front lines keeping our families, friends and communities safe. Their tireless efforts in this ever-changing battle against Covid-19 is crucial.

The Canadian Nurses Foundation (CNF) is launching the COVID-19 Fund for Nurses which will

  • Support Nurses TODAY
  • Provide mental health support for nurses during this COVID-19 pandemic
  • Help provide nurses with the evidence, skills and training they need to better navigate COVID-19
  • Develop and share best practices for future pandemics
  • Explore and support new research in critical care and pandemic response

CNF thanks our nurse heroes risking their own health and their own lives on the front lines of a war we must win.
