I have been given an offer to study BSc Adult Nursing in September this year (2014) and I am in the process of completing an application for the NHS bursary.
I've been told though that I can also apply for the maintenance loan from student finance, even though I don't need the tuition fee loan.
I have started an application on gov.uk but it only seems to tell me that I am not eligible for the tuition fee loan and does not show me how to apply for any other finance. ??
Any comments would be really helpful.
Applying for student finance with a NHS bursary as well? Watch

You definitely can apply for a reduced rate maintenance loan through Student Finance if you are studying on an NHS funded course.
On the application form you are completing, there will be a question which will ask if you are receiving an NHS bursary, when you state that you are, you will later come to a question which asks if you would like to apply for a maintenance loan. Providing that you select yes, you will be assessed for the maintenance loan only.

Does this also work if my NHS bursary is not income assessed, because as soon as I click that it isn't it says I'm not eligible for student finance?
I don't know whether I'm filling in the wrong application form?
Sorry to be a pain

I've just had a ditzy moment and realised that my NHS bursary is income assessed. I've now managed to complete my application form and send it off.
Thanks for all your help! x
