International Conference Scholarships 2024

As part of our commitment to enhance cancer nursing education and professional development throughout our membership, we are delighted to announce the availability of three International Cancer Nursing Conference Scholarships for 2024. This includes 2 x CNSA grants of $2500 to assist two members in participating in international cancer nursing conferences, and a $5000 grant, courtesy of Slater and Gordon*, to support one member in attending the World Lung Cancer Conference in San Diego, USA.

International conferences provide a platform for cancer nurses to exchange ideas, share best practices, and learn about the latest advancements in cancer care globally. We are excited to offer the opportunity to support two dedicated cancer nurses in attending an international cancer nursing conference, anticipating that they will return with valuable insights and knowledge to implement new strategies and evidence-based practices in their work, ultimately leading to improved patient outcomes in Australia. The 2 x $2500 grants are intended to contribute to expenses such as flights, accommodation, ground transfers, and registration costs.
