The Florence Nightingale Foundation raises funds to provide scholarships for Nurses, Midwives and Health Visitors, to enable them to extend knowledge and skills, and to promote innovation in practice.
All available scholarships are a chance for nurses and midwives to better their professions, advance their own career, and ultimately are an opportunity to contribute to the improvement of care of patients and users in the UK.
Applications for the 2016/17 Florence Nightingale Foundation Scholarships open on Tuesday 1 March.
Leadership Scholarships of up to £15,000 are available for those who want to become leaders with the skills and self-confidence to contribute positively and with some significance to the rapidly changing world of healthcare.
Research Scholarships of up to £5,000 are available for scholars to undertake a course in research methods, research modules or a dissertation/thesis as part of an academic course of study. All of these must be able to demonstrate impact on patient care and be academically supervised or supported.
Travel Scholarships of up to £5,000 are a real opportunity to study practice elsewhere in the UK and/or overseas to enhance patient/user care in the UK. These scholarships are awarded for projects connected with the applicant’s field of work and which will benefit their patients/users and the professions more widely.
Research and Travel Scholarships are available to Nurses and Midwives who have current registration with the NMC and who work and are resident in the UK. Leadership Scholarships are additionally available to all registered healthcare professionals who have current registration and are resident in the UK.
