PARKINSON’S CARE NURSES – STUDY SUPPORT – DEADLINE EXTENDED.

PARKINSON’S CARE NURSES – STUDY SUPPORT – DEADLINE EXTENDED.

When Parkinson’s Queensland Inc. (PQI) announced an innovative grants/awards program in support of the Queensland based nursing community.
The Parkinson’s Care Post Graduate Unit of Study through the Australian College of Nursing acceptance of enrolments for the January and July 2019 intakes appears to have caused some confusion when completing the application form. This has been resolved and updated pathways to access the form from this site have been provided.

The closing date for applications has been extended to 5 October 2018 to enable successful recipients to attend the PQI Annual General Meeting which is to be held on 27 October 2018.

Nurses are aware of how seriously Parkinson’s Care nursing is to PQI, its members and, indeed, all people affected by Parkinson’s whether they be diagnosed, family, Carers, friends or colleagues. PQI believes the availability of the Parkinson’s Care Post Graduate Unit of Study program will assist in reinforcing the importance of the role of the Parkinson’s Nurse Specialists within the community.

  • At its recent meeting, the Management Committee of Parkinson’s Queensland Inc (PQI) committed to providing Grants or Awards to be taken up by Queensland based Registered Nurses wishing to undertake the Parkinson’s Care Post Graduate Unit of Study;
  • Available will be five (5) Awards of up to $2,500 each for Queensland based Registered Nurses working in the Parkinson’s Care related sphere of influence; an investment totalling $12,500 in 2018-2019 financial year.

Parkinson’s Queensland Inc. sees these awards as a positive step towards encouraging greater engagement with those Queensland based Registered Nurses who have an interest in Parkinson’s Care.
These announcement of these Awards will demonstrate to governments at all levels that PQI wants to see the availability of qualified Parkinson’s Care nurses increase in our State and for there to be greater government investment into moving that towards a possibility. PQI encourages Queensland based Registered Nurses to consider applying for an Award.
In order to be eligible for this award, Registered Nurses will need to provide the endorsement of your employer.
When you are ready, you can APPLY NOW

Good luck.
