Academic Awards Program


“Offered by the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA), the certification credential is part of a respected national certification program. The program is developed by Canadian nurses for Canadian nurses.” The certification credential is an important indicator to patients, employers, the public and professional licensing bodies that the certified nurse is qualified, competent and current in a nursing specialty/area of nursing practice. Certified nurses have met rigorous requirements to achieve this expert credential.”

The CAET is committed to advancing the profession of Enterostomal Therapy Nursing. For many years the CAET has provided financial awards to CAET ET students and CAET Active members who are pursuing academic advancement. The mandate and processes involved within the Scholarships and Bursaries award system was reviewed by the CAET Board during the year 2010. The CAET Board determined areas for improvement which would better meet the needs of the future Association.

Despite the size of our Association, CAET has been able to continue to offer these financial awards which is a strength. This has remained possible due to the continued financial support of our industry partners and because we continue to receive applications for these awards.

The following CAET Academic Awards are currently available:

  1. The CAET ETNEP ET student academic award which will be based on academic achievement;
  2. The ET who is an active CAET Member pursuing a Baccalaureate, Masters or PhD may apply to be considered for a CAET Academic Award.This academic award will be assessed by specific criteria such as:
    • Academic marks;
    • Number of years the ET has been a member of CAET;
    • Involvement in CAET, board and executive positions, committees; and
    • Involvement in planning a CAET conference.

These criteria will be weighted and the ET applicants with the highest scores will be awarded.
