Institute for Nursing
About the Institute for Nursing
Conceptualized in 2000 and formally announced in 2004, the Institute for Nursing (IFN) was created to enhance the image of nursing, promote progression of nursing practice, and realize the full contribution of nurses in health care.
The mission of the Institute for Nursing is focused on the promotion of health and quality patient care through the advancement of nursing science at every level of practice.
We do this by integrating nursing research, education, professional growth and outcome studies. We strive to empower nurses to share and enhance their knowledge, expertise and potential within a supportive and focused environment. We intend to facilitate a system-wide standard of care and a national model for nursing practice.
