Every year, the Canadian Nurses Foundation gives out more than $270,000 in scholarships and bursaries to advance nursing practice and knowledge in Canada. Our scholarships are awarded based upon merit. We believe that supporting Canada’s best and brightest nurses will ultimately lead to superior patient outcomes and a stronger Canadian health care system. As Canada’s only national nursing foundation, we proudly accept applications from students across the country, in all regions of Canada.

Scholarship applications are now CLOSED. Applicants will be informed of results by the end of June. Applications for 2019-2020 will open November 2019.


The online 2019 Certification Application will be open June 15th. You may apply only for the cost of the exam fee, not including tax or test centre fee. Please note changes to the Certification Awards process. The application now requires your uploaded résumé in PDF format, and completion of a brief “Tell Us About You” text field.
