Invest in Our Current Campaign

April Campaign 

Spring is the time of year for new beginnings. You can help the AORN Foundation spark a new beginning for an aspiring nurse by supporting our educational initiatives.

You can create opportunity for an aspiring nurse by providing a named scholarships starting at $1,000. These scholarships will go to qualified applicants who are looking for a spark to start their journey.

Pledge to give an aspiring nurse the spark they seek. 

“In our present economy, I am blessed to have this scholarship support to help with the expense of school. The scholarship will allow me to continue uninterrupted in achieving my BSN. The scholarship also is an encouragement to persevere and an affirmation that my pursuit is important.” 

- Chris Herr, RN, Foundation Scholar

Every donation further increases the AORN Foundation’s capacity to provide academic scholarships and educational materials which will support the future growth and development of the perioperative profession.

With your loyal support the AORN Foundation has awarded 2 million dollars in academic scholarships to students pursuing a degree in nursing and to registered nurses who are continuing their education in perioperative nursing by pursuing a bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral degree.
