Release date: 18/10/2018

Orticare Pharmacotherapy Network is offering scholarships to Alcohol and other Drug (AOD) Nurse Practitioner Candidates (NPCs) working in the Grampians or Loddon Mallee Regions.

One of Orticare’s current workforce development priorities, as noted in the Strategic Action Plan, is to increase the number and capacity of AOD Nurse Practitioners (NPs) in the catchment. AOD NPs are a small but rapidly-growing specialist workforce in Victoria, based in both hospital and community settings.

Orticare is utilising 2018/19 scholarship grant funds to offer financial support towards the completion of a master's degree for NPCs working in the Grampians or Loddon Mallee regions. For more information or to apply, see the Scholarship Guidelines or Application Form below.
