    I have just read somewhere that if you apply for student loan you dont get the bursary and that from the NHS, I am just so confused on what as a Nursing student you get and dont get cause ive seen on here some people contradict everything I read on the website so very confused! Haha.
    Also has anyone received anything reguarding the health checks, bursary/funding forms etc.
    I have firmed Edge Hill and put down Keele as my insurance both for Mental Health Nursing
    Best of luck to everyone! X

    Hi I have spoken with both the SFE and the NHS bursary . I have completed and sent in evidence for both my applications. You do not need to wait for a letter from NHS bursary inviting you to join (that's what I orig thought until I spoke with companies)

    This is what I wrote to peeps on TSR and my student nursing fb page -----

    I have just spoke with SFE . All of us are only entitled to a maintenance loan from SFE this is because we get NHS bursary. (This is the same regardless of parent, living at home and financially situation). Living outside London entitlement would be 2324 if you don't currently live with parents. If you live with parents it based means tested( based on there financial situation). Because its a LOAN we all have to pay it back when we start earning 21k or more ( you earn just over 21 as nurse). We would pay back a maximum of £30 a month this includes RPI interest of 5% so really not very much. SFE tel number is 0845 300 5090


    She told me that the NHS something we don't pay back. It varies and is means tested ( based on finances of parents or husband or partner) ( if you have been financially independent of parents for 36 months you will be classed as individual) . (Also if you have dependants like kids). Dependant on what you are entitled to could include the - parents allowance. - dependants allowance - non income accessed award £1000. - extra weeks allowance . She gave me a helpline number for NHS bursary 03003301345, I called it and we can apply from now as they like the applications in up to 6 months before. We have to register and create a user I.d and password. We then get a ref number that starts with SBA and this is what the SFE will need (if you apply for SFE). There is no ref number that we receive in post. Our Uni will send notification to NHS bursary of us having a place on course. This will tie in with our application for NHS bursary.

    Lastly you don't have to apply for SFE but have to apply for NHS bursary as this is how our tuition fees are paid. Note we DO NOT pay back anything we get from NHS.

    You do need to wait for NHS invitation to apply for bursary or they cancel your application and you have to do it all again. You can do sfe now and send evidence after you've applied for the bursary. Sfe said to me we will get about 2500 for the year x
