bursary partnersYou’re in your final year of high school and you’re trying to decide what to do with your life.

You’ve hit a wall in your 9-5 and want to make a career out of giving back to those in your community.

Making the decision to pursue a career in health care is a bold and selfless move. A move that the South Shore Health Bursary is here to support.

In the bursary’s 15 years it has helped 119 South Shore residents finance their education in a health-related field. Of the 119 bursary recipients, 85 trained to become Registered Nurses (RNs), 26 became certified Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), and one trained to be a doctor and is currently practicing in Lunenburg.
