Friends of Nursing

The Friends of Nursing (FON) at Sierra View Medical Center, a nonprofit 501c(3) program, helps the hospital recruit and retain talented nurses through providing scholarships and advanced professional education support. FON accomplishes its work and promotes the nursing profession entirely through the efforts of its members, donors and volunteers. Funds for scholarship awards and programs, patient education, educational speakers, seminars, nursing activities, hospital equipment, and national award displays are raised through various events and the generosity of donors.

The FON program was established in 2006 by the Sierra View District Hospital Foundation in an effort to incite interest in the nursing profession as our state endured a serious nursing shortage at the time. Since its inception, FON has raised more than $100,000 through fundraisers. Money has also been raised through employee giving campaigns and Save Mart Supermarkets SHARES program.
