Aged & Palliative Care Nursing Bursary

Alex Gow Funerals Aged & Palliative Care Nursing Bursary

Being part of a community means that we care for one another regardless of age, race or creed. At Alex Gow Funerals supporting our community is paramount and is shown in the way we provide service to and care for our families. For over 170 years our mission has remained unchanged, to care for the families of South East Queensland. We pride ourselves in being a leader in our industry but more importantly we pride ourselves on the high professional standard of care and service we provide.

As an organisation we have become increasingly aware that those who have now reached the twilight of their life deserve the best of care so they can spend their final years with the dignity that a life well-lived warrants.

With this in mind, and to assist those who work with our aged, Alex Gow Funerals has now created the Aged & Palliative Care Nursing Bursary. This bursary is offered to Registered and Enrolled nurses who wish to further their professional development in the areas of aged care or palliative care. The bursary is valued up to $3,000 and is offered as a contribution toward the cost of accessing Postgraduate courses, Workshops, Conferences and Seminars to expand their knowledge and ability to better care for our elderly community. It can be used to assist in the payment of course fees or for the purchase of text books, etc. associated with further studies.

Bursary applications are closed at this time but will be advertised on our FaceBook page when next open.
