Newfoundland & Labrador Registered Nurses' Education & Research Trust

Congratulations to the recipients of the 2020-2021 funding competition. This year the Trust awarded $43,000 in scholarships, bursaries and research awards. We were unable to hold our annual awards ceremony due to the pandemic.  View a Message from the Trust President to award recipients.

Registered nurses and nurse practitioners, through their contributions to the Trust, ease the financial burden of nursing students enrolled in basic education, and their nursing colleagues who are pursuing professional development and continuing education. Thanks to the continued support of RNs, NPs and some generous donors, the Trust is able to provide funding opportunities that foster nursing knowledge.
