The Department of Health is offering scholarships and support for nurses and midwives to return to practice in public health services through a refresher pathway.

This program is offered to nurses and midwives who are registered but have had a break from work in a hospital setting and want to refresh their skills or upskill.

Refresher programs provide education, clinical teaching and ward-based learning. This includes up to 8-10 weeks of clinical placement time at a public health service.

The funding support provided will enable you to cover the costs of program participation, such as living expenses while completing clinical placements.
