Nurse’s Children Foundation (NCF) is a nonprofit organization committed to providing collegiate financial opportunities for children who have suffered the loss of a parent in the Registered Nursing (RN) profession. Our mission is to provide a legacy for these children, by dedicating monetary assistance to their academic careers. The death of an RN can potentially create a financial hardship for their family. We believe by contributing to the educational hopes and dreams of their children, we remember and honor the lives of Registered Nurses who have died.
