NL Registered Nurses' Education & Research Trust

Congratulations to the recipients of the 2022-2023 funding competition. This year the Trust awarded over $51,000 in scholarships, bursaries and research awards.

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.
