ICN is delighted to extend for two additional years the partnership with the Burdett Trust for Nursing, for the support and development of he GNLI in its next phase from 2014 and 2015.The Burdett Trust for Nursing is an independent charitable trust named after Sir Henry Burdett KCB, the founder of the Royal National Pension Fund for Nurses (RNPFN) in the United Kingdom. The Trust was set up in recognition of the foundation philosophy and structure of the RNPFN. Working in collaboration with their funding partners the Trustees aim to make grants to nurses and other healthcare professionals involved in a wide range of innovative projects.
