All HHS nurses and midwives can apply for up to $3,000 each year from the scholarship fund, pro rata, for professional development (PD) activities. Participation on the PDRP/QLP is necessary to access the funding.
All scholarship applications will be considered and prioritised within available funds and at the discretion of the Director of Nursing and Midwifery.
In addition to the scholarship fund all CCDHB nurses and midwives who actively participate on the PDRP/QLP receive funding entitlements for professional development. These entitlement amounts recognise attitude, skill and knowledge at the various PDRP levels.
For more information about the funding process and what is covered refer to the professional development funding framework for nurses and midwives.

Skills Matter funding is used as part of a postgraduate pathway leading towards a postgraduate certificate or diploma, or a clinical masters degree that has clinical mental health and addiction nursing as its focus. In some cases, nurses who have completed a masters degree may be funded for additional study.
