VNF was established to
continue programs of support and innovation for nurses and nursing in
the Commonwealth. To promote and enhance the professional development and education of registered nurses, VNF provides several scholarships aimed at alleviating some of the financial burden associated with furthering education.
Public Policy Scholarship
VNA Chapter Scholarships
New this year! Each VNA chapter will award one $1000 scholarship to a nursing student in their area who has successfully completed at least two semesters of a state-approved and nationally-accredited school of nursing.The 2018 application period opens on January 1 and closes on February 27. Scholarship applications are now being accepted.
VNF is in the process of developing a new scholarship program for registered nurses who wish to participate in public policy leadership programs. We hope to launch this program in 2018.
