Heather May Herrick Scholarship Program

 

The scholarship is named in memory of Heather May Herrick.  Heather received outstanding care, including palliative care and pain management from a Nurse Practitioner which made a huge difference to Heather and her family.  After a long battle with cancer pain, thanks to a Nurse Practitioner, her last 2 months of life were comfortable. In appreciation for the unique role of the Nurse Practitioner in Australia and the outstanding work that they do, Heather’s family has funded a scholarship program aimed at supporting more Nurse Practitioners and Advanced Practice Nurses to deliver services to people like Heather.
