Now is a great time to become a nurse or midwife

Are you interested or know of someone interested in pursuing a career in nursing and midwifery?

The Victorian Government now offers scholarships for eligible Victorian domestic students enrolling in a professional-entry nursing or midwifery course in 2023 or 2024.

Eligible students will receive funding over four years, with a maximum amount of $16,500 to offset the costs incurred during study.

All new students enrolled in an approved nursing and midwifery degree in 2023 or 2024 who meet the eligibility criteria will receive this scholarship.

Applications for these scholarships close on Wednesday 24 May.

To learn more or share more information with your networks, you can visit the Victorian Department of Health website for information about the free nursing and midwifery study offer or how to apply for the undergraduate (entry-to-practice) scholarships.

If you know someone about to complete their nursing and midwifery studies, please encourage them to attend the 2024 Nursing and Midwifery Graduate Program Virtual Expo on Thursday 11 May, so they can learn more about the opportunities we provide, plus tips and advice for their applications.
