General Grant Information


Education Grant

All nurses working in the community in Hertfordshire (including school nurses and general practice nurses) are eligible to apply for a grant to help them undertake professional development. Nursing grants have been awarded in recent years for a wide range of subjects, including part-time and full time degree courses.

Recent awards have included Counselling, Palliative Care, Cancer Care, Mental Health, Childcare, Learning Disabilities, Asthma, Tissue Viability, Systemic Psychotherapy, Pain Management, Gerontology, Nurse Prescribing and Postgraduate Nursing Degrees.

It is important that the applicant has their manager’s approval to ensure appropriateness of the award to both career and employment situation, and to patient care. All available assistance and funding from NHS sources must have been sought.

Any group of Community, Hospice or Practice Nurses employed in Hertfordshire can apply for help in running a particular course or project where the cost cannot be recovered through NHS resources.
