Many dedicated and hardworking nurses would like to further their education and advance their skills.

But the average cost of a 12-month part-time postgraduate nursing program is $11,290.

This is beyond what most nurses can afford.

Donors making a special gift of $5,000 or more are invited to establish a Nursing Scholarship at Eastern Health. The scholarship will help a nurse to complete further education.

Your investment will also ensure the best possible care for all patients, now and into the future.

At your discretion, your Nursing Scholarship may be awarded to a nurse working in a specific area of health (ie cancer, intensive care, cardiology, etc) or nominated Eastern Health hospital. 

You can develop the next generation of nursing leaders by making a donation today.

As at September 2019, 12 Scholarships have been generously funded from individuals, businesses and community groups in vested in the development of a capable, responsive, diverse and supported workforce at Eastern Health. 

The Scholarship Program is open to all staff undertaking a program of study in 2020. Applications opened on 23 September and close on 31 November 2019.
