Strengthening the pathway in for Aboriginal ‘emerging nurses’
- Scholarship and student support program, Marr Mooditj
Scholarships are fundamental in providing financial assistance for students to complete studies. Marr Mooditj (external site) recruits the greatest number of Aboriginal regional and metropolitan enrolled nurses.
Collaboratively, Marr Mooditj and the Nursing and Midwifery Office are developing a tailored approach to scholarship and student services to meet student needs in order to maximise the opportunity of graduating with an enrolled nurse qualification. This will be followed by research and evaluation of how scholarship programs can be improved to address the needs of students and consider what leads some students to early withdrawal from their studies.
The Nursing and Midwifery Office offers a wide variety of scholarships for undergraduate and postgraduate students. Aboriginal people are strongly encouraged to apply.
- Recognition of Prior Learning, Aboriginal Health Workers
Aboriginal Health Workers provide so much service to the community. Many have specialised skills which have been developed throughout their professional career in Aboriginal health work.
The Nursing and Midwifery Office recognises that many of these skills are utilised in nursing and have a partnership with the University Notre Dame - Broome (external site) with a conversion pathway program for Aboriginal Health Workers who wish to develop a career into nursing.
