Nurse artists are encouraged to join the website to sell their art in a virtual gallery as part of a group-Art by Nurses. A percentage of the sale from each piece of art will be deposited automatically into the Art by Nurses Art Fund for Nurses. As the art fund grows, any registered nurse can apply for funds to use art as a strategy to maintain balance and meaning in their lives as healers. Retaining healthy nurses in the midst of a nursing shortage is the ultimate goal of Art by Nurses, as well as recruiting nurses for the future.
The Art by Nurses web site brings nurses together as a community using art as a powerful self-care resource.
