Applications open for nursing scholarship
Applications are now open for Moira Shire Council’s 2022 Post Graduate Scholarship Program.
This post graduate study will lead to the qualification of a Maternal and Child Health Nurse.
Moira Shire Mayor Libro Mustica said the scholarship program valued at $4000 was available to registered midwives who undertake a Post Graduate Diploma of Nursing Science in Child Family and Community at an accredited tertiary institution.
“Maternal and Child Health (MCH) nurses play a vital role in our community,” Cr Mustica said.
“In particular, the team of MCH nurses at council are highly professional health practitioners who give information, support and advice on a variety of topics including parenting, development and learning, child health, family health and wellbeing, safety, immunisation, breastfeeding, nutrition and family planning.”
Selection for the program will be based on the following criteria – Australia citizenship or permanent residency status; a resident of Moira Shire or surrounding municipality; currently registered as a registered nurse and midwife with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia; enrolment in tertiary courses; and the intention to complete the course within two years.
“Students currently receiving funding from another scholarship are still eligible to apply and unsuccessful applicants from previous rounds are encouraged to reapply,” he said.
“For more information about this fantastic opportunity give our friendly Customer Experience team a call on 5871 9222 or go to our website.
“Applications will close Friday, November 19.”
