About
Our Scholarship

The NCAP Gateway to Global Nursing Scholarship program is an initiative from the Institute of Health & Management (IHM) to meet the global shortage of skilled and qualified nurses.

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), there is already a shortage of 5.9 million nurses globally, and with one in six nurses expected to retire in the next 10-years these acute shortages will continue. To bridge this gap there is a need to educate and upskill at least 4.7 million new nurses.

In line with the theme adopted by the International Council of Nurses (INC) for International Nurses Day 2021; "Nurses: A Voice to Lead - A vision for future healthcare", IHM is offering 1000 scholarships valued at AUD 2,000 each (AUD 2 million) for nurses from around the world to pursue a higher degree in Nursing. Scholarships may be used against fees for IHM courses included in the ‘ NCAP Gateway to Global Nursing’ program.

IHM will provide a platform for nurses internationally, where students from countries such as Australia, UK, Ireland, Canada, USA, India, Middle East and Europe will access a high-quality education and unique student experiences as they prepare to take-up nursing opportunities around the world.

The program is aligned with IHM’s purpose; "to enhance lives through healthcare and education” and employs innovative approaches to nursing education utilising technology-enhanced learning methodologies with virtual classrooms and resources to enhance the learning experience.

Currently, countries like Australia, are not allowing international nurses or students to pursue on-campus studies in Australia. Through this scholarship program, IHM aims to provide high-quality postgraduate education online that will prepare nurses to meet the demands of nursing and meet nursing shortages during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. IHM will continue to work with health authorities and governments around the world to support their healthcare staffing needs.
