  • The Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS)  funds Victorian registered nurses to undertake and complete a master’s program (or other appropriate units/modules at master’s level) that lead to endorsement as a Nurse Practitioner (NP).

Victorian Nurse Practitioner Program Scholarship Update

To more closely align our nursing and midwifery scholarships, in 2018/19 the department will incorporate nurse practitioner scholarships with those administered by health services.

New guidelines and an application template have been drafted and will soon be distributed. Health services will have greater flexibility regarding the distribution and allocation of funding, however guidance will be included recommending the governance arrangements that should be considered when choosing to support registered nurses commencing a Master of Nurse Practitioner course.
