NL Health Services is offering 36 scholarships across the province to eligible staff and dependants of staff and two scholarships to eligible graduate or post-graduate students pursuing studies with a particular focus on quality processes, ethics, or disclosure practices in health care. Groups and/or organizations that support NL Health Services, including the Health Care Foundation, St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital Auxiliary, the Janeway Children’s Health and Rehabilitation Centre Auxiliary, and the Sister Mary Fabian Hennebury Scholarship Fund, are offering a total of eight scholarships to eligible staff and dependant of staff within the Eastern urban and rural zones.

“We are proud of our people and recognize their commitment and contributions to delivering high quality and safe health services,” said Debbie Molloy, Vice President, Human Resources. “We value the importance of ongoing training and educational opportunities that help promote learning and growth throughout their career.”
