Are you a General Practice Nurse (GPN) hoping to access the NHS Education for Scotland (NES) GPN Funding announced by The Scottish Government, or do you work with GPNs who may be eligible?
With courses across Chronic Disease Management delivered as eLearning modules validated by The Open University, Education for Health has a wide range of education that could meet your needs.
We have courses that are all online learning with no study days, courses with study days in Stirling, and we plan to add courses with study days in other Scottish cities, all starting before 31 March 2018.
1. Find the course you want at www.educationforhealth.org/scotland and secure support from your line manager/GP to access it.
2. Check you meet criteria and apply at NES for funding: https://response.questback.com/
3. Book online with Education for Health at www.educationforhealth.org/scotland. You can pay immediately by credit card, or choose pay by invoice to sort funding and pay later. Please note, your place is not secured until payment has been received.
Education for Health is not involved with NES funding, and cannot influence whether you will be successful, but we believe all courses listed at www.educationforhealth.org/scotland fall within the criteria for funding examples listed on the NES application page.
Please share this news with anyone you think might be interested!
Don’t forget: The funding covers courses starting before 31 March 2018 but also courses that started since 1 April 2017. So if you already studied with us this year, you might choose to apply for retrospective funding.
