Kickstart a rewarding and diverse career in nursing

25 Jan 2019


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

Enrolled Nurses are a valued part of the nursing and wider healthcare team, caring for people when they can be at their most vulnerable, across a variety of clinical settings including acute medical and surgical units, operating theatres and mental health.

Danielle Evans, who completed the program in 2018 says the scholarship was a great incentive to encourage a career change.

“I love being able to help people and being a nurse can take you anywhere. There are just so many options coming into this field.


“All my kids are older, so working in the Children’s Ward and seeing all the babies and children – it reminds me of what matters most. I love being able to care for families this way,” says Ms Evans.

The Enrolled Nurse scholarship includes course fees for a Diploma of Nursing and guarantees a job offer at the completion of the program.

To be eligible you must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident living in NSW. Aboriginal people are particularly encouraged to apply for the scholarships.

Applications close 19 February 2019. More information and applications.
