NZVNA Scholarships

Kathy Waugh Leadership Scholarship

In 2021, the NZVNA introduced it's very first scholarship in recognition of Kathy Waugh and the commitment that she gave to the NZVNA Executive Committee.

This is an annual scholarship. Applications are now open for the Kathy Waugh Leadership Scholarship 2023 

Kathy Waugh joined the New Zealand Veterinary Nursing Association (NZVNA) Executive Committee (then Council) in 2000.

Over this time, Kathy has held a number of portfolios – from President, Treasurer to Membership Secretary and everything in between, with most of our members having talked with her directly over her 21 year (voluntary) role on the Executive.

Kathy was a talented veterinary nurse and practice manager, and has a passion for continuing education and giving back to her profession.

The NZVNA recognizes how Kathy’s contribution and leadership skills have helped advance our community to where we are today and, to acknowledge and remember this outstanding contribution into the future of veterinary nursing and our association in Aotearoa, have established a scholarship in her name.

The Kathy Waugh Leadership Scholarship will assist veterinary nurses towards achieving development, and their career goals and support future leaders of our profession.

This scholarship will provide the successful recipient with $2000 towards the advancement of their career and leadership goals.
