The Ministry of Health will continue to offer and manage the process for bursaries in the area of clinical placements.
Please note the following changes as of May 1, 2013:
In an effort to enhance the recruitment and retention of needed health professions to rural and remote parts of the province and to link prospective students to public employers sooner, the following changes have been made to the Saskatchewan Health Bursary Program:
Interested students are asked to check the individual RHA websites for additional details on the nursing and allied health bursaries and make applications directly to the RHA/SCA. Should applicants be successful in receiving a return-in-service bursary from a prospective employer, they can expect to sign a return-in-service agreement with that employer.
Interested Nurse Practitioner students are required to contact the individual Saskatchewan Health Regions directly (see link below) regarding bursary details. Should applicants be successful in receiving a bursary for rural or remote parts of the province, they can expect to sign a return-in-service agreement with the region.
Interested Nurse Educator students are requested to apply to the Ministry of Health (see link below). Final selections of bursary awards are made by the educational institution. Successful applicants can expect to sign a return-in-service agreement with one of the proposed prospective employers.
Midwifery bursaries will be offered through the Regina Qu'Appelle, Saskatoon and Cypress Health Regions. Application is made directly to the Regional Health Authority. Successful applicants can expect to sign a return-in-service agreement with one of these prospective employers.
If you have any questions about these changes, please call the bursary inquiry line at (306) 798-0938. Due to the volume of calls, please allow two or three business days for a response.
