The ANMF offer up to 5 educational grants each year to eligible members worth up to $200 each. Grants are to be used to assist members with professional development.
We will provide financial donations to members/nursing organisations based on the following criteria:
- Have two years of financial membership with the ANMF
- Not have received an ANMF grant in the previous three years
The ANMF Tasmanian Branch’s Educational Grants are available to members who meet the above criteria to attend education related courses within the Health Education and Research Centre (HERC).
Donations may be made for HERC seminars relevant to nursing, patient care or ANMF organisationally but excludes formal academic studies. The donation shall be up to $200.00 and applicable receipts must be presented to ANMF for reimbursement
It is an expectation that the employer supports professional development and applicants must show that they have considered all other relevant avenues for funding.
All requests require completion of a pro-forma application in writing, addressed to the Branch Secretary, Emily Shepherd, who will refer the request to the ANMF Executive Committee. Executive shall consider the requests on merit and the following criteria, and award successful applications (which will be tabled at Branch Council).
A written report from the successful member is required following the undertaken education and this may be printed in ANMF publications including eNews and Infusion.
Any request for donations from benevolent groups shall be considered by the ANMF Tasmanian Branch Council. Requests should be directly related to healthcare or nursing. Branch Council meets once a month and during this time will have the final decision on all applications. The ANMF will be in touch with the final decision following this.
