Education and Other Events

Elanie Killeen Scholarship

An opportunity to receive $500 towards your professional development in 2017/8

The Victorian Branch has established the Elaine Killeen Education Scholarship to support a Victorian or Tasmanian CENA member currently practicing in an emergency department to attend an education event. The value of the scholarship is $500 and the recipient will receive up to this sum to go towards paying the costs associated with an education activity. This award has been established in acknowledgment of the significant contribution made to CENA by Elaine Killeen a dedicated emergency nurse and member of the Victorian Branch who passed away suddenly in 2011. Elaine was specifically committed to education and was responsible for education in Victoria for several years. To make this award possible, the Victorian Branch have undertaken to run an extra fundraising event each year to sponsor this award.
