Embark on a fulfilling career as an Enrolled Nurse

12 Jan 2022


Are you thinking of a career in nursing or considering a career change? An Enrolled Nursing Scholarship with NSW Health could be the opportunity for you.

Scholarship applications are now open for the NSW Health Diploma of Nursing (Enrolled Nurse) 2022 program.

As an enrolled nurse you will have a rewarding career, opportunities for ongoing education, fulfilling work and the chance to work across a range of clinical and community environments.

The Enrolled Nurse scholarship includes course fees for a Diploma of Nursing and guarantees a job offer at the completion of the program (after standard recruitment and registration processes).

Scholarship recipient Abigail Booth is on the first of three rotations. She knew nursing was meant for her when she began her placement on the Rehabilitation Ward at Blue Mountains Hospital.

“The collaboration and support on the ward is amazing. I really enjoy getting to know my patients and having that professional relationship with them on their recovery journey,” says Abigail.

Working in the Nepean Blue Mountains area was important to Abigail. The diversity of our Local Health District gives her broad experience in her placements, nursing in Nepean Hospital, a large tertiary facility, as well as the more community based Blue Mountains Hospital.

Abigail recommends the program to anyone wanting a fulfilling career.

“It’s such a rewarding job helping people. You see people go from not a great place to feeling better and know that you’ve helped that process. If you’ve got a caring attitude, nursing can be for anyone.”

Applications for the 2022 NSW Health Enrolled Nurse scholarships are open until 10 February 2022.
