Have you always dreamed of working for Australia's aero medical health service but do not meet the Flight Nurse position requirements to be endorsed as a Midwife?

The Royal Flying Doctor Service is now providing an exciting opportunity for suitably qualified Registered Nurses to access a limited number of Midwifery Scholarships. The Scholarships, available across Australia, will provide financial support to those Nurses so they can gain this important qualification, which is a requirement to become an RFDS Flight Nurse.

These scholarships are to be used for costs associated with your study towards a Midwifery Qualification in 2018/19 such as course fees, text books, etc.

Selection Criteria:

  • Registered General Nurse with AHPRA Registration;
  • Emergency Nursing or Critical Care Certificate / experience;
  • Significant relevant postgraduate nursing experience;
  • Australian citizenship or permanent residency in Australia.

Applications for 2021/2022 scholarships are now open.
