Summerset nursing scholarships at Massey University

27 February 2019

Summerset has partnered with Massey University to offer scholarships to support high performing nursing students in their final year of study, especially those who are passionate about aged care and primary health.

Applicants can apply for one of three scholarships worth $2000, which aim to give financial support for students completing 360 hours of clinical placement, as required by the Nursing Council of New Zealand.

Summerset’s Clinical Learning and Development Manager, Sharon Rydon, says the scholarships have been developed to support nursing students who see aged care as an area they’d like to work in during their nursing career.

“Limited numbers of New Zealand nursing graduates choose to go into aged care during the final semester of their degree programme, or in their graduate year. We want to attract Registered Nurses to Summerset to care for our residents as they bring knowledge and skills, and above all, passion, to our workforce.”

The closing date for applications is 11 March. For more information and to apply, visit the Massey website.
