Grace Kinsella Women’s Health Memorial Scholarship for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Nurses
The Grace Kinsella Women’s Health Memorial Scholarship provides annual funding for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander nurses and midwives to undertake the required education to prepare them for employment in women’s health. The Women’s Health Nurse (WHN) as a career path still struggles to gain traction in the health field, yet these nurses play such an important role in the community. This scholarship aims to encourage more Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander nurses and midwives to pursue a career in this field.
The educational requirements for the WHN role can be found on the website of the Australian Women’s Health Nurse Association, the Advanced Practice Standards: https://www.womenshealthnurses.asn.au/resource/
