Courses may include the following:
Specialist Community Practitioner Qualification (SPQ)
Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (SCPHN)
Advanced Nurse Practitioner – community focussed
Other community nursing courses may also be considered
Maximum grant: up to £500 in any one year
Applications are considered on a discretionary basis and assessed individually.
