Honoring the Heroes of Healthcare: It starts with you

We are passionate about nurses and making sure they are recognized for the heroic work they do every day for patients and their families.

Honor A Nurse, created by the American Nurses Foundation and supported by Lippincott Solutions, seeks to make sure nurses know they are respected and values.

But we’re not asking you to make any ordinary gift. We’re going to make sure your nurse knows that she or he is important to you and the countless patients and families they have impacted.
