Our mission


Excellence in nursing practice, education and research.


Contributing to improved health outcomes for Albertans by funding  registered nurses and nurse practitioners’  lifelong learning and scholarly inquiry in nursing education, research, administration and practice.

A Canadian registered charity since 1984, ARNET provides educational supports to Registered Nurse and Nurse Practioner members of the College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CARNA). All current RN and NP members of CARNA are eligible to apply for support for continuing education activities. Charitable Grants support specialty nursing certification studies; degree level studies and conference and workshops directly related to nursing practice.

ARNET also honours the outstanding academic and professional achievements of CARNA members through the Annual ARNET Academic Scholarships for graduate level studies.

Educational supports are possible through the generosity of donations; our fund raising activities and investment earnings. ARNET’s financial details are available on the Canada Revenue Agency website at ARNET on Canada Revenue Agency website or by contacting our office at 1.844.453.0523 Ext 528.
