AHNA Scholarship - The Time is Now!

Time is running out for nursing staff to apply for the inaugural Austin Health Nursing Alumni (AHNA) Scholarship.

Scholarships are being offered for the first time in 2019 and applications close on Sunday, 30 June.

These scholarships are designed to give our talented and passionate nurses the chance to further their career while also helping us better care for our patients.

Nurses can apply for a scholarship to help meet the costs of exploring and answering key questions of clinical practice through travel, research, or by attending or presenting at a relevant conference.

Through the scholarships, Austin Health nurses will be able to demonstrate how the work they do can have wider benefits to our clinical, educational or research activities.

The scholarships are a key initiative of the new Austin Health Nursing Alumni and have been largely supported by donations made to last year's Christmas appeal which focussed particularly on the work done by our nurses.

The AHNA is a fantastic resource available to current and former Austin Health nurses so they can connect, share their knowledge and support each other to achieve excellence in their care.

"I hope to hear from you, and hope you take up this new and exciting opportunity to advance your career, improve care to our patients and shine a light on our nursing excellence," Chief Nursing Officer, Bernadette Twomey, said.

Applications for the AHNA Nursing Scholarship close this Sunday, 30 June.

All applications will be reviewed by the AHNA Scholarships Selection Committee and shortlisted applicants will be required to attend an interview in early July. The successful applicants will be notified in late July and formally acknowledged as part of the Nursing Grand Round in August.
