Local start-up brings you breakfast in bed

Breakfast is now a whole lot more luxurious with the recent launch of Le Petit Brekkie in the Byron Shire. Changing how we enjoy breakfast, Emma and Kevin, the team behind the business, curate fresh, locally sourced breakfast boxes to be delivered directly to their clients’ doors. With the tagline ‘breakfast in bed, delivered’, Le Petit Brekkie hopes to make the indulgence of a lazy lie-in even more tempting.

There may be nurses in your community who have taken time away from the profession to have a family or to pursue other careers.

There’s now an incentive for them to consider returning to nursing, thanks to a $10,000 scholarship available from the Australian College of Nursing (ACN) which covers course costs and textbooks for CQUniversity’s Registered Nurse Re-Entry Course.

This scholarship is currently open for applications now until 15 September 2014.

This course is available via distance education (10 weeks online theory, three-day workshop and 160 hours of clinical placement) and CQUniversity can arrange clinical placements in the applicant’s home region.

It’s the only course of its type in Queensland and one of only a few in Australia available via distance education.

Details of the scholarship are available via the ACN website or by calling 07 4980 7079.
