Thank you for believing, and investing, in the American Nurses Foundation’s mission to transform the nation’s health through the power of nursing. Thanks to your support, 2013 was an extraordinary year for the Foundation. In the pages of our enclosed Annual Report, you will read what we accomplished together and its impact on nurses across the country.
Before you begin, I want to include a brief note about some of the artwork in this report. We are delighted to feature photos from Carolyn Jones’ groundbreaking work, ‘The American Nurse Project’ and her documentary movie, ‘The American Nurse: Healing America.’ This film is a phenomenal piece of art that elevates the voice of nurses in America. As a result of our long-standing work with the Project, the Foundation was delighted to host the world premiere of Carolyn’s film and to now be able to share some of its powerful images with you.
Please enjoy the American Nurses Foundation’s 2013 Annual Report. We are honored to share with you the amazing accomplishments of the past year and grateful for to you for your role in making this all happen.
