Applications for Diploma of Nursing (Enrolled Nurse) scholarships from the NSW Government are open until 13 February 2018. The diploma program starts at TAFEs and registered training organisations from March 2018.
Upon course completion and registration, scholarship recipients will be offered a job as an Enrolled Nurse in a NSW Health facility.
Enrolled nurses provide care in a range of settings, including acute medical and surgical units, operating theatres, paediatrics, mental health and the community.
Parliamentary Secretary for Regional and Rural Health Leslie Williams encouraged school leavers and anyone looking for a career change to apply.
“I particularly encourage Aboriginal people to consider this opportunity as a great way to contribute to the health outcomes of local communities,” Mrs Williams said.
