Yes, there are various scholarships available for international students from Nigeria to study Nursing in the UK and Canada.

In the UK, there are a number of scholarship programs that offer financial assistance specifically to Nigerian students who wish to pursue Nursing studies. The Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (CSC) offers fully-funded doctoral fellowships for Nigerians under its African joint scheme program. Additionally, the Manchester Foundation Scheme (MFS), funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), provides support to Nigerian postgraduate applicants seeking admission in any of the medical or nursing courses offered by University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust.

Apart from these, other government-sponsored schemes like Africa Health Placement Fund (AHPF) and Diaspora High Impact Opportunities Fund (DHIOF) also provide fellowship awards for Nigerian candidates willing to pursue Nursing courses in Britain’s universities.

In Canada too, aspiring nursing professionals from Nigeria can get financial aid through several scholarship opportunities funded by different private trusts/charitable funds as well as provincial governments. For example, Canadian Ethnic Studies Association Scholarships is open exclusively to students belonging to ethnic / minority backgrounds including those of West African origins such as Nigeria. Similarly, Ontario Postsecondary International Student Bursary Program offers need-based bursaries up to $5K duration per academic year towards tuition fee of selected foreign students enrolled at an Ontario college or university; this includes course on Medicine & Nurse Training Programs too! Apart from these government-aided scholarships programs, some Universities like Queen’s University School of Business offer additional merit based bursaries/scholarship awards worth approximately CAN$110000 per annum exclusively open for international applicants including those hailing from Nigeria who aspire Masters Degree in Healthcare Administration or Dedicated Advanced Practice Programmes leading Nurse Practitioner accreditation etc…
To sum it up: There is no dearth of scholarship programmes available across both countries -UK & Canada -for qualified Nurses hailing from developing countries such as Nigeria; it requires researching extensively regarding eligibility criteria set forth respectively and applying soonest possible with relevant documents ready prior submission deadline dates!
