• establishing pathways for career development.

Charles and Flora Fenton Nurse Scholarship

The Charles and Flora Fenton Nurse Scholarship program was implemented as an initiative to address our ageing clinical workforce in late 2009. The program is available to our employees whereby we financially assist the employee to undertake their Bachelor of Nursing or Diploma of Nursing. The program establishes a clear career pathway for current and potential employees and since implementing the program a number of staff members have achieved their qualifications and are enjoying their new role within our Organisation.
