Nursing Now Challenge Fellowship Programme announced
The Nursing Now Challenge Fellowship Programme aims to build the leadership of early-career nurses and midwives in Africa and Asia, in alignment with the Nursing Now Challenge.
The programme aims to:
- Increase leadership (confidence, competence and capability) of participating nurses and midwives, enabling them to be more effective and increase their leadership, influencing and decision-making abilities.
- Raise the status of nursing and midwifery within Health Partnerships and within their multi-disciplinary teams.
- Raise the status of women, who comprise the majority of the nursing and midwifery cadres, within the health workforce.
- Improve quality of global health projects undertaken by health partnerships, and thus partnerships’ outcomes and impact.
THET will work in close collaboration with a technical partner based in an LMIC to deliver leadership training to nurses/midwives nominated by their Health Partnerships, who will then be supported to develop and implement a Quality Improvement project.
For any queries on the grant programme or the application process, please email email@example.com.
The programme is open to established Health Partnerships operating in: Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Myanmar, Nepal, Somalia/Somaliland, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia.
Size and duration
THET expects to award between 40-80 Fellowships to LMICs nurses and midwives.
The Fellowship programme will last for twelve months, starting in November 2021.
Fellowship grants of up to £8,000 will be available to successful Health Partnerships participating in the programme for the implementation of the Quality Improvement projects and other Fellowship-related costs.
