Nurse Bursary Scheme

  • PIXABAY-05022016-computer-1149148_1920

We are investing £20,000 into the Professional Bursary Scheme and we want to support haematology nurses who work with blood cancer patients and their carers.

Leukaemia CARE’s nurse bursary programme in partnership with the Royal College of Nursing Foundation is back for a second year.

This autumn, we are investing further into the Professional Bursary Scheme to support nurses who work with blood cancer patients and their carers.  You can apply for a grant of up to £5,000.

Your proposal must impact on the quality of care and support you provide to patients with a blood cancer and/or their carers.  

This can be a course of study, attending a conference or a research project, for instance.  However, you must demonstrate what you believe the impact will be on the blood cancer patients you support.

We are especially interested in supporting any research that improves the care and support provided to blood cancer patients and if successful, how this could be adopted more widely.  This can be a standalone project or part funding towards an existing one.

You should also include in your proposal how you will share any learning with other nurses supporting blood cancer patients.

If you are successful, you may be invited to speak about the outcomes of your proposal at our annual nurse’s conference.

Applications open 31 August and close 30 November 2017. All applications must be made through the RCN Foundation.

Grants in 2016 were awarded for the following activities:
