Supporting tomorrow’s nurse today!
The RNFBC has been providing bursaries for nursing students for 33 years. Last year, the RNFBC provided just under $85,000.00 in bursaries. The RNFBC, like many other non-profit organizations, is experiencing more challenges in receiving adequate returns in its capital investments and in raising new moneys in donations. The next few years will continue to be more challenging. The RNBC Board will work hard to reach more potential donors and to reach a broader potential donor base. We hope that you will support the RNFBC in its efforts to assure an ongoing ability of providing needed bursaries for nursing students.
The cost of nursing education has and continues to rise. Nursing students are finding it more challenging to complete their nursing education. An RNFBC bursary can make a significant difference for many nursing students. The RNFBC would like to assist more nursing students in the future but will require your support. Donating to the RNFBC will assure ongoing support for nursing education in British Columbia.
