Friends Of Nursing
In 1981, co-founders Greta Pollard and Janet Pirkey established Friends of Nursing of the University of Denver as a non-profit scholarship support group for the school’s nursing program. After DU phased out its nursing program in 1985, the organization was renamed Friends of Nursing (FON) and broadened the scope of Colorado college and university nursing programs it supported. Today, FON awards scholarships to students seeking a baccalaureate or higher degree in nursing through nine Colorado schools of nursing.
