Introducing the Nurse Innovator Award

RNFO Logo CMYK CaileaPurple light blue


Beginning in the fall of 2019 the Registered Nurses’ Foundation of Ontario (RNFOO) will present the first Nurse Innovator Award. This award, spearheaded by RNFOO Honorary Life Members, will provide funding, mentorship and recognition to nurse innovators. The award recipients will be nurses who want to apply new ideas and methods within nursing, patient care, or healthcare.

We are looking to find 100 nurses and friends-of-nursing who will commit to donating $500.00 a year for five years to the RNFOO Nurse Innovator Fund.  Our goal is to raise $50,000.00 each year. The total raised will determine how many Nurse Innovator Awards we can distribute each year.

As a funder you will have an opportunity, if you desire, to:

  • review applicant videos describing their innovation, use of funds and cast your vote for your preferred innovations;
  • mentor a nurse innovator as they bring their innovative idea to life;
  • attend a reception where the award recipients will be recognized;
  • be part of a group of likeminded nursing leaders that help enterprising nurses turn their ideas into action; and
  • be acknowledged in all relevant communication.

The Nurse Innovator Award provides a wonderful opportunity for you to work with RNFOO to recognize creative nurses with potential to make a difference to nursing and healthcare.

Please join us in making this happen.  We can’t do it without you.

All donations to RNFOO are eligible for a tax receipt.
