“Receiving a fellowship allowed me to take additional leave from a busy full-time Clinical Nurse Manager role and focus completely upon my doctoral thesis. I have now moved to a position of having completed all but the final chapters and expect to be at the point of submitting the thesis to the examiners before the end of this year.”
