Nurse leadership scholarships for aspiring deans

  • Comment

A new leadership scholarship scheme has been launched for nursing academics looking to lead university faculties with nursing, midwifery or allied health professional programmes. 

The tailored programme is a joint initiative by the Florence Nightingale Foundation and the Council of Deans of Health.

Professor Elizabeth Robb, chief executive of the foundation, said the programme offered an exciting new leadership development opportunity to aspiring deans. 

“It will be excellent to help academics to achieve their potential as leaders taking forward the profession,” she said.

Professor Ieuan Ellis, chair of the Council of Deans of Health, added: “Given the rapid changes in both healthcare and higher education, it is great to be able to contribute to the development of future Deans and build a network of senior leaders.”

Applications are welcome from all those looking to become a dean of a university faculty with nursing, midwifery or allied health programmes. They can be from any healthcare professional background but must be UK residents.

Applications for 2014-15 scholarships will close on Wednesday 24 September. More information is available from the Florence Nightingale Foundation website
