Nurse Bursary Scheme

  • PIXABAY-05022016-computer-1149148_1920

We are investing £10,000 into the Professional Bursary Scheme and we want to support haematology nurses who work with blood cancer patients and their carers.

Here at Leukaemia CARE we’re thrilled to have launched a nurse bursary scheme through the Royal College of Nursing Foundation.

We are investing £10,000 into the Professional Bursary Scheme and we want to support haematology nurses who work with blood cancer patients and their carers. You can apply for a individual grant of up to £5,000!

What can the bursary be used for?

As a charity, we’re committed to supporting anyone affected by blood cancer, therefore, your grant must make an impact on the quality of care and support you provide to patients and their carers.

Your proposal for a grant can be a training course, a conference or even, a research project. Whichever you choose, be sure to tell us what the impact on blood cancer patients will be.

We’re especially interested in supporting any research that improves the care and support of blood cancer patients and how it could be used more widely to really make a difference. This could be an independent project or your grant could be used towards funding an existing project.

Don’t forget to include in your proposal how you will share any research findings with other nurses supporting blood cancer patients.

How can you apply?

Applications for our nurse bursary scheme have now closed. To know when applications open, sign up to receive medical news here.
