Institute of Leadership Scholarships

Nursing leadership is complex and demands tailored knowledge and expertise. The Institute of Leadership is where nurses develop leadership skills vital to patient safety, care and advocacy.

Your donation towards the development of scholarships to support nurses to attend these leadership programs is needed. Many nurses who have been accepted to attend cannot because of limited financial resources. Australia has an acute nursing shortage. More scholarships to support nurses are a necessity to keep nurses nursing, training and develop the leadership skills required to ensure our standard of health care continues to be at the level we expect.
