Re-Entry to Nursing Scholarships

Re-entry to Nursing Scholarships are a NSW Government initiative to help previously registered or enrolled nurses re-enter the NSW public health system when they undertake a fee-paying re-entry to nursing program approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA). Up to $10,000 will be awarded for each scholarship.
The scholarships target individuals who have been away from nursing for 5–10 years and therefore do not meet the NMBA's recency of practice standard. This standard requires the equivalent of three months full-time practice in the previous five years in order to retain registration. Individuals who do not meet the recency of practice standard may be directed to undertake a Board approved re-entry to nursing program to regain their registration and return to practice.
