ADMINISTERED BY THE CANTERBURY DISTRICT HEALTH BOARD
This form will cover application for the Gerontology Acceleration Programme (GAP) which includes HWNZ Funding for postgraduate study. Funding is available for payment of University fees and study leave for attendance at compulsory study blocks. It is administered by the Postgraduate Nursing Education office at the Canterbury District Health Board - funding is not paid directly to the trainee.
Please ensure your application meets the GAP eligibility of 0.8 to 1.0 FTE with more than 12 months experience in nursing older adults. Please ensure your application also meets funding eligibility as set out in the Health Workforce NZ website: http://www.health.govt.nz/system/files/documents/pages/1-b57-hwnz-postgraduate-nursing-training-spec.doc
This is a GAP and HWNZ funding application only - it is NOT an enrolment to university. You will need to enrol with the University separately.
