Nursing Foundation


The Nursing Foundation aims to resource, mentor and connect selected nurses/midwives in order to foster a culture of innovation and excellence in practice, education, management, research or professional organisational settings.

Nurses and midwives form the largest group of health professionals who serve the people of South Africa.  They work in public and private, urban and rural, well-supported and resource-poor environments. Their role is challenging, their opportunities to make a difference vast and their contribution great but often unseen and so easily overlooked and under-valued.

The Nursing Foundation currently support the following funded projects

  1. Healthy Work Environment Initiative
  2. Professionalism and Caring Initiative
  3. Flourish 2013 conference grant
  4. Inclusive Health Innovation Summit conference grant
