The International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) Foundation began in 2008 with funds from IAFN’s original Nightingale Committee.  Beginning in 1999, the Nightingale Committee established guidelines for the distribution of funds, and created a committee of nursing scholars with interest in promoting both forensic nursing and expansion of forensic nursing research. 

Charitable status was granted in 2010, and the IAFN Foundation now holds its own 501(c)3 non-profit status.

The IAFN Foundation currently awards scholarships to the yearly International Conference on Forensic Nursing Science and Practice through the IAFN Scholarship Program.


The mission of the IAFN Foundation is to promote the professional values of forensic nursing by supporting forensic nurses and ongoing advancements in nursing practice through scholarships for professional education and equipment grants for programs that demonstrate financial need.


IAFN Foundation Educational Scholarships were established to promote global excellence in forensic nursing through education, information sharing and networking. The Scholarship Program provides financial assistance to members and other forensic nurses from around the world who might otherwise be unable to attend the IAFN’s Annual International Conference on Forensic Nursing Science and Practice. 

The Georgia Pasqualone Camera Award (GPCA) was established by the IAFN Foundation to provide programs or facilities that provide medical forensic care for victims of violence, with camera equipment.
