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.”
