About Alabama Nurses Foundation:

The Alabama Nurses Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization that was established in 1984 to serve the nursing profession in the state through educational support, research grants, and benevolent assistance to nurses in crisis. Over the years, the ANF has provided scholarships related to nursing education and community grants for qualifying projects initiated by nurses. In 2015 the “Nurses Save Lives” specialty auto license tags were approved by the Alabama Legislature, and the popularity of the tags has grown every year in significant proportions. Consequently, the ANF has been able to increase scholarship awards and will be adding new programs for research grants and benevolence assistance to nurses.
