Synergy Innovation Scholarship

Do you think a practice or process in your workplace can or should be improved? Do you want to make change happen and you need support? Consider applying for a SYNERGY Innovation Scholarship (SIS)!

The purpose of the SIS is to support Nurses and Midwives to undertake practice or process improvement projects within their work areas. If you are interested in applying it is essential that you receive ongoing support for the project from your direct supervisor, Director of Nursing or Midwifery and an academic mentor.

If you would like to know all about the SYNERGY Innovation Scholarship, please read the guidelines.
