The aim of the Rural Nursing Scholarship is to provide incentives for a nursing student to complete their 3rd year major clinical placement and graduating year in a rural/regional area. This will encourage and influence the nursing students to consider pursuing a nursing career in regional area upon graduation. Nursing in rural and regional areas is a unique and rewarding experience. Teams are smaller and nurses use their full range of skills to care for patients with diverse needs. From a social perspective, lifestyles are generally more relaxed, commuting time is shorter and there's more time to enjoy the natural environments. This Scholarship will have the benefit of enjoying the fellowship of Rotarians and also expose the candidate to aspects of rural community life.
