Help us make some LemonAID!

As the temperatures go up, so do the number of funding applications your nursing charity receives. We’re determined to make the best of this situation, but we can’t do it without you. Without your help we are unable to support educational programs like the ones ARNET supported for you. HELP US by donating as little as the price of one LemonAID each month. For as little as the cost of one glass of LemonAID, just $3.00 a month, you can help us provide the educational AID that others provided for you. Together we can make something sweet out of a sour situation! Donate Today!

We’ve listened.

In response to your feedback and to the ever increasing requests for financial assistance, ARNET will be making changes to how we distribute our charity’s supports for advanced and ongoing nursing education. Our donors and our applicants agree that the current practice of trying to stretch our limited resources to meet rising demand is not effective. Our volunteer Board is actively developing new partnerships and processes that maximize our donors’ supports. Some changes will be immediate (incomplete applications will no longer be processed) and some will be implemented over the next 24 months. Our goal is to provide meaningful financial support that directly impacts the nursing practice of registered nurses and nurse practitioners in our province. We’ll keep you updated on our changes and want you to know that we are listening.


ARNET recently announced and celebrated our ARNET Class of 2018. While we applaud the academic and professional achievements of these incredible RNs, we also want to congratulate and thank the Faculty of Nursing at the University of Alberta and at the University of Calgary for partnering with us to match the scholarship values that were awarded to their eligible students. This combined support of degree level studies clearly demonstrates their commitment to their students and the profession of nursing in Alberta. Together we CAN do so much – thank you for your support of Alberta’s RNs!

Dad was right- it doesn’t grow on trees!

But you CAN make money grow and that’s what ARNET does for Alberta’s registered nurses! With the generosity of our monthly donors, our charity takes lots of small donations and makes them grow into BIG benefits for Alberta RNs and the communities that they serve. For as little as $4 each month, ARNET donors can contribute to the advanced and continuing nursing education studies that support RNs in saving and changing the lives of Albertans. For as little as $4 each month, ARNET donors can ensure that RNs have access to the latest health research and the most advanced patient care strategies in the world. Monthly donations can be made through automatic bank withdrawal or through your credit card – it couldn’t be easier and we have a donation option that is perfect for everyone.

September means Back to School!

At ARNET, September also means it is time for our annual DEGREE FUNDING review and funding distribution. While it is heartening to see such an incredible increase in the number of Alberta RNs pursuing university studies, our charity is again overwhelmed by the sheer volume and amount of charitable support requested. We want you to know that we place HIGH value on your educational pursuits and that we are doing everything in our power to RAISE MORE funding so that we can provide increased supports. But we need YOUR help to do that because , no matter how we calculate it, we just can’t make $1,028,148 in funding requests = $253,000 in available funds. Help us make the math work for Alberta RNs. Donate today!

Donate Today!

Charitable tax receipts will be issued for all donations to our charity and you’ll have the pride in knowing that your donation dollars are making a direct and significant difference in the lives of Albertans – each and every day.
