    I want to be a children’s nurse but university places are even more competitive this year. As a result I am thinking about getting some experience by working as a HCA (I don’t know whether I’m going to do the NVQ as an apprenticeship or go straight into it yet) and then re-applying next year. If I did this would I still be entitled to the NHS bursary and for the NHS to pay tuition fees as I would have already been working for the NHS??

    If you take a gap year, it is uncertain whether the NHS will be able to fund future courses, due to government cuts.

    It doesn't make a difference if you work for the NHS.
