    Would you say that it is fair that, with tuition fees now being £9000 a year, nursing students get their fees paid for while also getting a bursary of about £125 a week? I know they are on placement 50% of the time but thats even better as they are building up work experience to and increasing their employability

    Couldnt people who want do do say health and social care just do nursing and then use the degree to do something similar/something else?

    Btw Im not talking about people who have a specific path in mind its just a lot of people/most Id say choose degrees in the health related area and don't know what they want to be and then end up doing nursing anyway.
    No one yet knows whether NHS funding will continue for students starting in 2012, due to government cuts in the health sector. For all we know, nursing/health students could be in the same position as everyone else come September 2012.

    The second people take your advice, the NHS will stop paying for nursing degrees.

    I have a few friends who have done nursing purely because they don't have to pay. Trust me, two of them have already dropped out, you won't last long if your heart isn't in it.
