About us

Nursing and the March of Dimes

The March of Dimes has a long, rich history of working with nurses. From the 1950s when more than 40,000 nurses participated in the Salk polio vaccine trials through today, the Foundation has always recognized that partnering with nurses is essential to achieve our mission.

For this reason, the March of Dimes developed an educational program devoted to supporting the work of nurses. Components of the program include a series of continuing nursing education (CNE) activities in print and online, scholarships and research awards.

March of Dimes nursing initiatives are guided by the expertise of its Nurse Advisory Council (NAC), a group of nationally recognized, preeminent perinatal nursing leaders. The NAC advises the Foundation on critical nursing issues and provides counsel and direction on education initiatives.

The March of Dimes also partners with professional nursing organizations, including the American College of Nurse-Midwives, the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric & Neonatal Nurses, and the National Association of Neonatal Nurses.

Watch our video about nursing and the March of Dimes. It's a message to say thank you for all you do.
