The American Nurses Foundation (the Foundation) and the Collaborative Alliance for Nursing Outcomes (CALNOC), which created the nation's first database of nurse sensitive measures, have announced the creation of the CALNOC Research Fund (The Fund).
CALNOC’s $2.5 million endowment to the newly-established Fund will support and promote health services research in the ambulatory care setting with an emphasis on the nursing profession's involvement in improving healthcare delivery. The $2.5 million endowment is the largest donation in the Foundation's history.
“This Endowment ensures the legacy of CALNOC will continue and flourish through the American Nurses Foundation,” said Mary Foley, RN, PhD, FAAN, Chairperson of CALNOC. “We are grateful for the Foundation and American Nurses Credentialing Center for their support and stewardship of this endeavor.”
