ACMHN/Janssen Cilag Scholarship Program for Mental Health Nurses & Students
Again in 2012, the Australian College of Mental Health Nurses (ACMHN) is running a joint Scholarship Program with Janssen Cilag. In addition, this year, we are pleased to announce the inaugural ACMHN/Janssen Student Scholarship Program - for student nurses who are specialising or majoring in mental health nursing.
The program will provide funding for mental health nurses and students who are successful applicants to attend the 38th Annual International Mental Health Nursing Conference, to be held at the Darwin Convention Centre from 3-5 October 2012.
It includes a fantastic program with inspiring and provocative workshops, highly regarded keynote speakers, and a full social program. (See the conference website for more details).
Two categories of Scholarships will be provided - to mental health nurse members of the ACMHN and to students specialising in mental health.
Congratulations to our 2012 Scholarship winners!
