The Florence Nightingale Foundation (FNF) supports nurses and midwives to improve care and save lives. As a UK-based charity, established almost 90 years ago, we are now expanding to reach one million nurses and midwives by 2027. Experience shows us the transformation that is possible when FNF enable nurses and midwives to connect, lead, and influence healthcare.
The Foundation’s principal focus is on improving health, clinical outcomes and patient experience, through building nursing and midwifery leadership capacity and capability. It does this by enabling nurses and midwives to access sophisticated and bespoke leadership development opportunities, both in the UK and overseas, tailored to the participants’ needs.
It is important that nurses and midwives are empowered to use their professional voice effectively and seek all opportunities to influence healthcare policy and practice. We will ensure that the Foundation becomes ‘the go to place’ for professional opinion and debate, a recognised academy for healthcare thought, and will be a voice for the nursing and midwifery.
