Gardner Foundation Gives Back Through Scholarships and Grants
INS established the Gardner Foundation to provide scholarships for INS members who are dedicated to advancing the delivery of quality infusion therapy, enhancing the specialty through stringent standards of practice and professional ethics, and promoting research and education in the infusion nursing practice. The Gardner Foundation honors the memory of Cheryl Gardner, CRNI®, who was was INS president from 1980-81 and was serving as INCC president at the time of her death in 1992. These scholarships recognize areas in which Cheryl excelled—infusion innovation, patient advocacy, and enhancing the image of infusion nurses.
