The Perfect Gift: A Donation to ACNL’s Circles of Giving

Do you have an RN colleague or friend who is retiring? Graduating? A nurse or health care employee who you would like to honor or recognize? Do you want to acknowledge someone who has gone “above & beyond”? Instead of a bouquet of flowers or a box of candy, have you thought about donating to ACNL’s Circles of Giving?

This is a gift that not only acknowledges the individual but continues to contribute to nursing. The Circles of Giving program provides funds to create and present educational programs such as the newly established Executive Leadership Academy, and scholarships to help nurse leaders obtain advanced degrees. Lifelong learning is a unique gift that positively impacts both nurses and patients.

So before you buy that gift card to Starbucks, consider instead making a donation to ACNL’s Circles of Giving. It is the perfect gift for the consummate professional and a heartfelt token that recognizes the importance of nursing.
