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, however pre-approval can be given while you work towards and complete your PDRP/QLP requirements.
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.
