Establishing our nursing alumni scholarships

Our nurses are leading the way because of you.
Thank you for helping in the establishment of our nursing alumni scholarships.

Our nurses are truly compassionate and caring – providing professional, warm and expert care to our patients every day. Thanks to your support for our ‘Nurses’ appeal, we’ve been able to establish the Austin Health Nursing Alumni Scholarship. 

This is already providing nurses with the opportunity to apply for scholarships to undertake vital research, education and learning that will change healthcare for the better for every patient. 

The first round of scholarship recipients has been announced, with six nurses receiving grants for their submissions. An exciting variety of projects have been approved, including:

  • investigating a new triage tool for oncology and haematology patients
  • attending conferences in clinical education, oncology and organ transplant
  • undertaking further study in nursing leadership and management
  • undertaking education simulation laboratory instructor training.

 “These terrific projects will support excellence and growth of knowledge across our nursing practice here at Austin Health,” says Bernadette Twomey, Chief Nursing Officer.

Thank you

You are helping change healthcare for the better for every patient.
