All Hospital and Health Service (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 or QLP is necessary to access the funding.
All scholarship applications will be considered and prioritised within available funds and at the discretion of the Chief Nursing Officer.
In addition to the scholarship fund all HHS 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.
