Community Nursing Scholarship

Community Nursing Scholarship

This scholarship aims to nurture the next generation of community nursing leaders. It is offered in partnership with the public healthcare institutions and community care providers, to develop community nursing leaders. They will play a central role in providing care beyond the hospital into the community to better meet the needs of the population. They will plan, provide and coordinate services that enable patients to receive care at home and in the community.

Delphine Chen,
Nursing
With the healthcare scholarship, I was able to travel overseas for an exchange programme to gain a deeper insight into the healthcare systems overseas and it expanded my horizons.
