Education Funding


The AOHNA cannot directly give members grants for continuing education in order to maintain its non-profit status.  

However, the Alberta Registered Nurses Education Trust (ARNET) is a charity dedicated to fostering the health of Albertans by raising, managing and distributing funds in support of lifeline learning by Alberta’s registered nurses (RNs) and nurse practitioners (NPs).

ARNET is proud to provide 2 types of educational funding supports for Alberta’s registered nurses:

Educational Reimbursement Assistance provides partial reimbursement for self-paid educational activities including specialty nursing certification studies; conference and workshop registration fees and tuition for degree level funding studies.


ARNET’s Annual ACADEMIC Scholarships recognize outstanding academic achievement and professional merit. This highly competitive scholarship review provides supports for RNs completing masters and doctoral level studies in support of their nursing practice.
