Supporting Tasmanian Nurses
In June 2012, the Australian Government announced its expansion of the Nursing and Allied Health Scholarship and Support Scheme to provide additional scholarships specifically for nurses and midwives in Tasmania over the next four years. This is part of the Government’s $325 million package for the Tasmanian health system.
The Tasmanian scholarships offered are for undergraduate clinical placements, postgraduate study and continuing professional development (CPD).
Administrative arrangements with the Australian College of Nursing for these scholarships were finalised on 31 July 2012 and an application round for the postgraduate and continuing professional development scholarships opened on 1 August 2012. The closing date for these applications is noon on 14 September 2012.

At least 50 undergraduate clinical placement scholarships are available for placements in 2013 increasing to 110 in 2014.
Applications for undergraduate clinical placement scholarships will be open to all enrolled and registered nursing and midwifery students studying in Tasmania for placements being undertaken within Tasmania.
