Nurses Memorial Centre

The Nurses Memorial Centre is a ‘living memorial’ to the heroism and sacrifice of the 77 Australian nurses who died in World War Two or survived years in prisoner-of-war camps during that time. Two worlds apart the vision of a living memorial was being formulated, on one side by Edith Hughes-Jones in Melbourne and on the other side by the nurses in captivity.

The Nurses Memorial Centre (NMC) offers a number of scholarships to exceptional candidates, such as nurses and midwives, undertaking postgraduate study at an Australian University or accredited higher education institution. The purpose of these scholarships is to increase access to postgraduate study for nurses and midwives as part of the NMC’s mission to act as “a living memorial” by advancing the nursing profession through education.
