Celebrate Nursing

Posted by CNF President on May 4, 2016  |   No Comments »

What’s better than a bumper sticker? A license plate that demonstrates your support for nursing each and every time you drive your car. With each purchase of a “Celebrate Nursing” license plate, 75% of the proceeds to the Connecticut Nurses Foundation.

Those proceeds in turn support the students, nurses, and citizens of Connecticut through scholarships, research grants and public health awareness.

Get your application for a “Celebrate Nursing” license plate today.

“Celebrate Nursing” license plates are not only for nurses. Any Connecticut resident who would like to support a nurse in their life, the Connecticut Nurses Foundation, or just “celebrate nursing” may purchase one. Your support will be evident and forever appreciated by nurses across the state and those we care for every day.

CNF is proud to work on initiatives throughout the year to improve the present and anticipate the future of nursing, but we need your help. All our initiatives are aimed at meeting the needs of the nurses serving in our communities, the professionals working in our hospitals and our neighborhoods. We want to hear from you.
