About the Nurse Well-Being and Recognition Fund

Added to Collection

The Nurse Well-Being and Recognition Fund provides a long-term source of restricted funding for initiatives that recognize nurses and those who support their work. Guided by the AACN Healthy Work Environment standard, Meaningful Recognition, AACN seeks to build global awareness of who nurses are, what they do and their unique contributions to the healthcare system.

Our long-term vision is to build a shared understanding of nursing’s contribution to healthcare and chronicle the lessons of their work to position nursing as a leading partner in enhancing the healthcare system to optimally serve the needs of society.

In the short-term, these efforts offer an opportunity to recognize exceptional colleagues for their daily work as knowledgeable clinicians, leaders and empaths who are vital to delivering optimal patient care. We have already initiated some of this work though recently developed projects, including our storytelling collaboration with dearworld.org, the online Peer Support Community and partnerships with leading nursing organizations to provide free tools and resources to support mental health and well-being.
